I've had my computer off all day because we had rolling blackouts. Apparently the delightful weather overloaded the power grid. My guess is all the Super Bowl visitors from Pennsylvania and Wisconsin brought their electric blankets.

Haha. Sorry to laugh at your misfortune but I like your theory for the reason for the overloaded power grid. Some one should do a study and test the theory.

took me a moment, then suddenly a lightbulb went off!

Too funny! :D I personally think they brought this weather with them too.
I liked your picture by the way. I noticed one of our neighbors at the bottom of the hill (on the other street...not ours) must have left their sprinklers on, because the icicles hanging off their bushes were humongous! I made doubly sure ours were off!

Regardless of your weather, that's a great picture.

Naomi,
~~I meant every word.

Cab,
~~No, you're good.

Jazz,
~~Winter weather makes you loopy.

LGS,
~~If the government funds it, they will do a test.

V,
~~No lightbulbs! You'll just add to the problem.

Carole,
~~That was from the blackouts resetting their sprinkler system. I'm glad mine was unplugged.

Ian,
~~Thanks. I took it through the front door because it was too cold to actually go outside.

I like to picture you lifting beer (after beer) to your lips in the darkness. No need to let it get you down, right?

Jocelyn,
~~Nothing gets me down. I'm all Chumbawamba over her.
