Boom and Brief Power Outage this AM

i am of the belief that…

…it’s 94 degrees outside – that’s hot. like hot as balls
…i don’t want to leave work in fear of sweating on my 200 feet I have to walk to the Metro station
…i had a full day today
…grants be kicking my behind
…it was a U2 remixes and Tortoise day
…i am going to do nothing tonight
…this weekend, i finally finished painting the dining room. it’s now as if the contractor never came
…i am going to fargo, nd in june. i can’t wait!
…my palm is syncing at work now. hurrah. talk about productivity
…when you scratch the part right above frankie’s tail, her teeth make that ‘click’ sound
…emily thinks it’s because she thinks a male dog is mounting her
…one would think frankie or any dog could tell the difference between a dog mounting you vs. a human scratching your back
…at 6:40 this morning there was a moderately loud ‘boom’ heard outside – then the power went out for a few seconds – and nothing. it was weird.
…i haven’t done one of these in forever!
…see ya

  • at 6:40 this morning there was a moderately loud ‘boom’ heard outside – then the power went out for a few seconds – and nothing. it was weird.

    The same thing happened here a couple weeks ago, complete with a massive flash (which was odd for such a relatively quiet boom). I thought I’d heard things and that it was just thunder ‘n’ lightning, but it was manmade, whatever it was.

  • When I lived in Charlottesville, VA (rep!) years ago, we used to have these ferocious afternoon thunderstorms that would send tree branches crashing to the street and the power would go out for at least three hours or so. They were of such frequency that you could set your watch by them. I was just telling a co-worker how much I missed afternoon thunderstorms; they’re such a rarity here in Mass…
