Back from Siberia

Back online after spending much of the past three days without power thanks to Monday’s ice storm across southern NH. No electricity, no heat, no water, and ohmigod no broadband for part of Monday, most of Tuesday and half the day yesterday. My daily routine was replaced by frequent trips to Home Depot and the neighborhood Benson’s Hardware in search of portable heaters, propane, flashlight batteries, Duraflames and (finally) a backup generator to keep the pipes from freezing as temps dipped to a toasty 1 degree yesterday morning. The house held up pretty well; the owner is still recovering from Tuesday’s all-nighter spent stoking the fire, changing propane tanks and adding extra insulation to the pipes in the basement.

  1. Dude,
    it was so cold here in San Diego that the Sex Wax wouldn’t stick to my long board when I went up to LaJolla to catch some waves. Come home, come home to San Diego, Rob.
    Dude,

  2. Dude, we people who love beautiful things know that in the end we will outlive skin cancer, even if we end up looking like lepors with parts missing.
    Namaste from the Ashram,
    Jim
