Spoke a little too soon. My power never went out, but my cable/internet did on Tuesday. As luck has it, I was able to link to an open network and am able to post this. I hope that with this new found connection, I'll be able to post until my internet is back up. I feel we're getting a sneak preview of the long emergency. I have seen mile-long lines for gas. Someone I work with has not had power since Monday.
