A Rainy Day

So I’ve been putting off writing this post for a while, mainly because as soon as I post it a bunch of people will probably start asking me about it, but there isn’t really much to say about it, even if I wanted to have a conversation about it, because it’s kind of private, ya know?  But today being a rainy and dreary day seems like an appropriate time to mention it.  Cynthia and I are separating.  We’re still friends, and I’m not really sure what the future will hold.  So yeah, there’s that.

So we thought everything was great when we got power back on Sunday. Then, the power went out again at noon on Tuesday. It’s Thursday night now, and we are not “scheduled” to have power restored until tomorrow night. So we bought a generator today (shockingly, Home Depot had a couple in stock), with which we are able to run the important things: the FIOS box, a wireless router, and a couple of laptops. And a fan.

As I write this, there is a crew out on the street presumably working to restore power sometime tonight. But I still don’t regret getting a generator. We lose power in this neighborhood all the time.
