I’m posting this from a Starbucks on my wife’s computer so this will be short. On Thursday there was gale force winds in the northwest which resulted in several hundred thousand power outages from Tacoma to the Canadian border. Our power went off Thursday at noon and we’ve been camped in the living from for the last 4 days and finally got power available late today. Unfortunately internet service won’t happen tomorrow – maybe. Okay, the internet got up faster than they told us.

ADD: Our Xmas turkey is now in the garbage can due to no refrigeration. It’s going to be Col. Sanders for the holiday. On last Wednesday, my shoulder angel whispered that I should post the next page that night but my shoulder devil wanted to watch TV. I’ve learned my lesson and will be posting more of the buffer before hand so if this happens again there won’t be any delays. Hope everyone has a lovely holiday.
