Great...

Note from management here this AM. Water to be turned off between 10AM and 5PM for a repair to the main. W-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l...

Haven’t had to participate in the rolling power outages the power companies are doing around here due to demand. Wonder if they will get around to us?

Guess your domestic arts practice will be only those that don't involve water... Boy, that's a loong time to be w/out water. :-(

Well that screwed me over, I guess. Did manage to shower and partially fill the tub before they cut it off. Just so I can flush the john. IF it holds water.

I'll watch a movie or read or something.

The leak is down by the pool so I'll know if (when) they get it fixed.

Push comes to shove I'll bail out for a while.

So did you have to deal with rolling blackouts too?
I lucked out totally... not one.

I have learned more about ERCOT this morning than I ever wanted to know :) From what I hear, it's covering the whole state except El Paso and the Panhandle, so you should not be surprised to get at least one blackout. They are ranging from 20 to 90 minutes.

And guess what? Although they exempt hospitals, fire stations, etc., they apparently have not figured out how to exempt traffic lights. So up here, we not only have dangerously icy roads, we have unregulated intersections.

Gee, they gave you a lot of time, didn't they?

Ah well I suspect the notice was put on the door the night before. But if you don't open the door...

Not a very efficient way of getting the message to you!
