Well, I’m back in civilization today. We have been without electric at our house since late in the day Tuesday, so I have been at home in the dark. I ventured back to work today, in order to pick up a generator from a friend. I wouldn’t have worried about it really (I sorta like it with no electricity or tv or anything, turns out!)…but our deep freezers were going to need some juice shortly or we would have lost all of our food we had frozen.
Shortly after I got to work today, my wife called and let me know that we now have lights again, so that is good. To all of you folks who are still out there with no power, hang in there…hopefully they will be in your area soon. I know they are working as hard as they can, and enough cannot be said about the job they are doing now, especially with conditions the way they are.
A couple of quick notes today to get discussions flowing…
– Looks like Judge Conley doesn’t care too much for the Topix web site…I saw it mentioned in the Scorcher this week. Who DOES like that site??
– What was originally predicted to be an all-out blizzard early next week for our area may be falling apart. Weather models today are showing the storm taking a more eastern track, which would have it missing us with the heavy stuff. We are not out of the woods yet, however…many of the models this year have done something similar, only to shift things back to the East at the last minute. Also, there is some concern that the data is being skewed because many of the aircraft that are used for monitoring conditions in Alaska are being diverted from normal flight paths, due to the impending volcano eruption there. This alteration of data could be part of the cause for the latest model runs…stay tuned!!
– Kentucky goes back in action tomorrow agains South Carolina. Hopefully we can work out whatever happened at Ole Miss.
