Outstanding Weather!

Date June 25, 2008

I write this, hunched in my basement, tornado sirens blaring. My wife and I are in Columbus, OH and it looks like this:

What a glorious looking storm, eh? I'm absolutely certain that the storm will knock out power to our backup site. We don't have a working generator there, but luckily I had the foresight to switch everything important off. 
Thanks to some recent last ditch efforts, I don't have to worry about mail not going through, and I can concentrate on hoping my house doesn't get blown over. It might make selling it easier though. I'd have to research how that works. Hopefully it'll be me, my wife, and our cat standing as a comedic looking house flattens around us, and we pop safely through a window, the walls collapsing gently and in coordination behind us. 
Updates later today if we don't wind up in Oz.

    Happened upon your blog because of boredom/mutual twitter follower (Ohio Linux Fest? or something)

    Anyways, I think it's a pretty sweet blog. I'll definitely be subscribing.

    Keep up the good writing!

    Alex,

    Very cool, glad you found me! I was at the Ohio Linux Fest a couple of years ago. I haven't made it since then because it always seems to fall on the weekend of my anniversary.

    Thanks for writing, and drop me a line from time to time to let me know how you think the blog is going. Take care!

    It's been non-stop thunder down here in Groveport since about 12am (It's 4am now). No sirens went off here, but most of the bad stuff seemed to hit up north, which is why you're hiding and I've been playing FFXI.
