Subject: Electricity

This is hour 22 of no electricity.I took the car battery out of our van and have used it to power my laptop since then. I should be able to keep my job, though my 3G modem is only 2G (dial up speed). I guess the local cell tower goes into low power mode during blackouts.

Odd thing about modern water wells, they require electricity. Our water tanks have been empty since yesterday noon. The kids are going to be a bit stinky at school today.

I really hate being a whiner, well hate is a storng word, but I am hoping they'll give us enough juice today to keep the food from rotting and put some water in the tanks. There is a scheduled outage today during all business hours, but they were supposed to have turned power back on at 3 PM yesterday.
