Fighting the (Lack of) Power


After the better part of six days, Nicky and I have finally gotten our power back.  We've spent most of the week of the Fourth sitting in our (relatively) cool basement and trying to keep poor Shasty hydrated.  Last Friday's "hit and run" storm took everyone around here by surprise, but we never thought that we'd have to wait until today to get back online.

I'm pretty pooped at the moment, because I couldn't use my CPAP device to help with my sleep apnea during the outage, and Breathe Right strips are not the most ideal substitute.  I was hoping to get started on the DuckTales 25th anniversary retrospective at midweek, but now I'm going to have to push everything back a week or two.  In the meantime, enjoy the initial installment of Pete Fernbaugh's retro, here.

Fer gosh sakes, Chris! I hope things are back to normal for you and Nicky by now! You’ve had enough “adventure” for one week!

…Oh-oh! Is that Yellow Beak coming up your front walk?

Joe,

Replace "week" with "month" and you'd be more accurate!

Chris,

Sounds like a nightmare. Glad your power has returned, and that you and Nicky are okay!

And, 5,941 harrowing escapes later, here’s this post!

…And Yellow Beak’s still coming to visit you! He’s outside now!

Hide while you can!
