The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

15 August 2003

Sure is dark out there

When my daughter and I talk, topics fly fast and furiously, and somewhere alongside the consideration of convertibles, real estate and the perfidy of Toyota starters, she wondered: "Would there be this much news coverage if the power went off in the middle of the country?"

I thought for a moment, then answered: "Well, yes, but most of it would be on The Weather Channel, because we'd be in the middle of a farging ice storm."

In the background, I can hear the air conditioner kicking in.

Being one of the millions without power yesterday, I totally missed the television media frenzy.

I was just happy that I got to use my Y2K candle stash. :)

So you missed the media frenzy. That's considered a blessing in disguise. :)
