Must be that global warming, eh?
Our power failed around 5:00 and was still off when I went to sleep at 9:30; it was back on when I woke up just after 1 in the morning. Luckily, my husband works fairly close by, and didn't get stuck on the road coming home. And, thankfully, our basement remained dry, although our backyard looked like a lake, a body of water I dubbed Lake Suzuki (for enviro-loudmouth Dave).
On the plus side, the big glass-topped table on the deck is now sparkling clean, as are all the windows.
