Apparently I pedaled hard enough...

Or I talked the moon into a favor - either one - because the power has come back on as of this evening.

The last estimate we got was another full day but happily that was only a pessimistic estimate. No water in the basement even.

This is all a good thing because once again I need to catch the train at oh-fsck-early tomorrow to get to the city on time for this week’s inventory job. The crank charged weather radio _does_ have an alarm and I _do_ have it set just in case but my phone should easily wake me up in time if I don’t get up at my usual 4:00 am.

My wife and child are hopefully resting comfortably in the A/C at my in-laws house. We sent them and our refrigerator perishables over there because they had power.

Tomorrow I get to ride the train and sleep more if possible. (The train ride ends in Chicago so no chance of missing my stop.) And I get to see cool sights like I saw today.

I was on the 35th floor of a building today in Chicago when the short but nasty storm hit.

Let me tell you - it’s DAMN cool to see all the skyscrapers around you look like giant waterfalls with lightning hitting the top of them. It was very cool and very surreal. 8-)

Tonight though I sleep on the couch in an effort to keep cool.

Later this week after working...more writing, more enamel.

Right now though...more sleep.
