I read about it all yesterday morning… people to the north, south, and west of me reporting snow. There was nothin' by me. Then, at noon, I saw reports of school closing and snowplows passing. Huh. Really?? 'Cuz I got nothin'! Am I living in a micro-climate over here? It started eventually, of course, big flakes falling fast and furious for a bit, not amounting to much. To the west, however, there are many more inches of snow and great numbers of people with no power.
What is up with that? Why are there so many more storm-related power outages all over and why, in some cases, are they lasting for days and days and a week? Stronger storms? Weaker/faulty infrastructure/materials? Have the utilities cut their workforce so much that there just aren't the crews available to deal with this type of damage in a timely manner anymore?
I don't quite get it.
Anyway, due to the pucky weather, I spent most of my day off yesterday in my PJs… most, but not all.
I did some computer work (clean up/prep for upcoming projects), worked out a few of life's problems, made some calls and got things moving… the sun is beginning to rise on a new horizon.
