Power Outages

Your team is in the Superbowl and what is a football fan's worst nightmare...Power Outages.  Someone was joking about this on Friday at work because no gusty winds were in the forecast.  Last night around 7 the wind gusts started; anywhere between 45-70 mph. 

It came back around 10.  My BF and I go to the Day's Inn which is our local convention center for the county and right across the street from his apartment so we can walk.  The power went off again around midnight right in the middle of their pre-Superbowl party.  The generator kept the tv on for a minute or two and then it crapped out.  The power companies are going crazy today trying their best to keep the electric running.  The wind is kicking up again.  Whoa is me....not a good sign in a city full of crazed football fans.

Anyway, I'm missing all of you.  I have to close all the applications on this old computer and pray that I get on and stay connected.  God forbid that Becky IM's me because then I just lose it all.  I can barely open my e-mail.  I have to type super fast to get the entry done or I lose it.  But....my house is getting clean for once since I got addicted to PSP so maybe this is a sign.

I'm hoping to have my part by Tues so I can spend a quiet evening and catch up with all your journals.  Today will be a nice day with Becky and Joey.  Becky is super stressed because she is still waiting for the final verification from the Ph.d program.  She is also really sickly with continuous sinus infections.  She saw an ENT specialist who is checking for polyps in her sinus cavity. 

I'm just a little worried about the weather around here because there are snow squalls.  I'm not worried about getting there; just getting home.  My alternate plan is to stay at Becky's overnight.  She lives a block from the house we're going to.  I can catch a bus from her place into work.

Thanks for your comments and patience.  I miss visiting everyone.

And, of course, lol...Deb....GO STEELERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

that would be a nightmare in the city of the winning team not to be able to see them win the game. I do hope the power stays on for you all, Chris. Take care of yourself and get some things done while you are waiting for that part. Its always good to take a break every once in awhile from journals and get some other things done.

enjoy the game!!!!

Chris, I can just see you typing away at the computer to hurry and save your entry before the computer shuts down or you get an IM! Lol, my poor girl.
Have safe travels and I will be thinking of you all through the game. I hope Becky is feeling better.
Love
Pen

Poor Chris.  I know what that feels like to have the computer broken.  You will be back to normal soon.  And I really feel for Becky, as I suffer sinus problems too.  Hope she gets better soon.  On a better note, your Steelers WON!  Congratulations!  : )  GBU, Shelly
