The Wrath of God



First of all, if you know what kind of card that is AND played the game, then you're an Uber Geek (echo echo) LOL. I have done both. :P But this post isn't about "Magic: The Gathering". It's about the Wrath of God.

For whatever reason, God is pissed at the Pacific Northwest.



Yesterday, we were POUNDED with Noah-worthy rain, as well as gusts of wind up to 100 miles per hour. Yup, we in Oregon and Washington experienced our own "hurricane" if you will. The skies are blue in patches today, but man, we lost our power for a good 6 hours, and some folks are still without power. Lemme tell ya, when you lose electricity for that long, you devolve. I'm serious, folks. DH and I were a hairsbreadth away from flingin' poo. LOL



In fact, here's a funny video about what truly happens when you lose your Internet. How we managed in the days before the 'Net is beyond me.

what about worked for a distributor and part of your compensation was cards? What kind of geek would that make a person?? :)


Yeah, I've been reading about your awful weather! That sucks! I hope the storms are over.

We've had lovely weather the past week. Its been like 50 degrees, some rain. The snow is GONE. I think we're having a green/brown Christmas :( I think I like global warming ;)

Yeah, that pretty much trumps us all. LOL

Can it get any worse?!?

Last night, a power substation in Beaverton (a neighboring city to Hillsboro where I live) literally exploded. Power went out to about 50,000 people, me included. This had nothing to do with the recent storm. It was a strange coincidence, but still!!

Our power fluctuated on and off for awhile last night, as PGE, our power company, tried desperately to re-route power through other substations while the fire dept. had to sit back and let the substation burn itself out. Water + Electricity = Nothing Good.

Our power has been on for awhile now, but it's still out for many other people, and it might still go out for us since other substations are picking up the slack. But wow, we saw it on the news, all flamey and glowey in the night...

It was across the street from the Costco I used to shop at. Scary stuff! :-O

Glad your power is back :)
