Winter Wonderland

Last night a wild storm tore through the area. As head nutter here at Becher Haus, I felt it was my responsibilty to make the kids grab pillows and blankets and camp in the living room. The power blinked out for a few minutes, and in spite of the fierce straight-line winds and torrents of rain, nothing seems to be damaged except my psyche. Well, that and a few of the 75 watts blew out when the power fritzed. There was also some mystery dripping, but the cat was on it, and as soon as she ferrets out the leak, we'll deal with it. I let the kids go back to bed after the rain stopped, but I could hear Lego-bits plinking around for another hour. They sleep about as well as I do, anymore.

Tomorrow the shop re-opens. Life returns to normal. Ack.

I miss Monday/Tuesday Mandi already.

Wow, I think 2008 will have to go in the Franklin history books as Storm Year. You guys have really been hit hard this year. Lots of wind here, but not much else. I expected it to be much worse with the huge temperature drop. Glad a tornado didn't find you!
