In the dark

It turns out we didn't need to worry about Frances while we were driving back from Mississippi on Monday, but it's put the big hurt on us here in Atlanta.

Our power went out at 5 a.m. Tuesday and is still off as of 1 p.m. today. I blame Georgia Power more than Frances, though. There's really no noticible damage - trees down, power lines toppled, etc. - in our neighborhood, yet we're more than 24 hours in to the outage.

I've yet to even see a Georgia Power truck in East Atlanta, and the wife just got off the phone with them. They say midnight tonight before the power comes back on.

Meanwhile, food's rotting in the refrigerator, the dogs are growing ever more restless, and we're missing the return of Ken Jennings on Jeopardy.

I think maybe instead of one of these, I should be thinking about buying one of these.
