or how Macaronie's learned to hate Craig and Brian.
As I last left you from the Boone County Public Library there was no power to my apartment, no power to either work offices and I was staying at the parents in Florence.
Thursday morning I called into the office, expecting to get voice mail that we were still closed due to power outage, but actually get a voice. Turns out that power was restored to the main office, house in the middle of no where Woodford County, so I rush back to Versailles for a day of meetings and fixing all the boxes and net connections fried with all the power problems.
After a busy day I was hoping for a little power at my apartment. The hope grew the closer I got to home, more and more of the places had power. Even more luck lights on at the apartment buildings!!! But wait, no lights on at my building? Seems that someone in their infinate wisdom thought that each building in the apartment complex should be on a different power zone. So no power for me, apartment temp 35 with outside temp 40.
As luck would have it Craig also still without power. We decided to comeserate over a dinner and warmth of Macaronie's and stayed til almost midnight. Sorry to the lone manager who kept the place open for us but dammit it was cold at the apartment.
Today things were a little worse at work. Seems that the T1 hooked up just before the ice storm was dieing a slow death and AllTell has declared an "Emergency Status" so all that extra money we pay to be up in an hour does us no good and it will be another week before they will get to us.
So that is all for now, hopefully there is power in the apartment else it is back to the parents til monday.
Or how I relearned a love for analog and remembered winters at the slum.
Saturday/Sunday 3:30 AM power goes off.
Sunday morning, still no power which means no heat. Apartment temprature 60.
Sunday night, apartment temp 50.
Monday morning, apartment temp 45.
Tuesday morning, fozbaca depates to Florence and the warmth of the parents house.
Current eta on power returning to apartment, weedendish.
Current eta on power to either of the KER, where I work, offices, maybe next week.
That is all for now, using the Boone County Public Library's computers for net access and they time out is ticking.
What I hope you've gathered by this point is that a chemical weapons attack that kills a lot of people is incredibly hard to do with military grade agents and equipment so you can imagine how hard it will be for terrorists. The more you know about this stuff the more you realize how hard it is to use.Like most things terror is in the mind more than reality.

Simple and primitive with a good understanding of the common man. You're still a work in progress, but a good start.
