It's a Good Thing...

It's a good thing I'm motivated to be positive!

This clip from the Seattle PI pretty much sums it up:

New windstorm causes power outages in north Puget Sound

EVERETT, Wash. -- High winds led to widespread power outages in the north Puget Sound region, just weeks after a windstorm left much of Western Washington in the dark.

Puget Sound Energy, the state's largest electric utility, had about 6,700 customers without service, spokesman Dave Reid said Saturday. At the storm's peak, there were 34,000 people in the dark.

Most of the remaining outages were on Whidbey Island, due to a downed transmission line...

I've added shopping for a generator and an inverter battery thing to my New Year's resolutions.

We have both here. Those inverter batteries are great.

We don't use the generator all the time, only for a couple of hours, when water and light become absolutely necessary for dinner prep and toilet flushing (we use an electric pump, so when the power is out, the water goes too).

I was thinking about you guys over the weekend and hoping against hope that you'd escaped the outage....
