Here we go again

Argh, today's big storm caused the power to go out earlier this afternoon and now my neighborhood is in the dark again, just like last December, and I'm having to get on the Internet by candlelight. What a pain.

About 100 homes on Mercer Island are without power, according to the city web site, but I don't believe them -- it's got to be more than that. There's a whole dark section along West Mercer down to the water, and a friend says the South End is dark too.

Update: I was wrong. The power to our neighborhood was back on before midnight and now everything's back to normal. Maybe it wasn't very widespread after all. Cancel that order for a generator.

Unbelievably, I live at the south end and I haven't lost my power yet.
