9276 - bloody, floody monday.

Power went out last night at about midnight or thereabouts... my CPAP shut down, so I had a lovely night of snoring over poor BHK's shoulder.

Showered and shaved in the rainy dawn-dark this morning - fortunately, I had a company polo shirt to wear, since the iron doesn't work sans juice, either.

I wonder how the Old Order Amish feel when they hear that the "English" (non-Amish) are fretting about not having any electricity?

Worse than the lack of power was the severe flooding and high winds.

Statement as of 6:39 AM EDT on May 12, 2008

... Flood Watch remains in effect until 2 PM EDT this afternoon...

* expect moderate to heavy rain to continue through the early
morning hours. Rain will taper off from the southwest to
northeast in the afternoon. An additional one to two inches of
rain is possible.

* The heavy rain will cause streams and creeks to overflow their
banks. Also... urban areas prone to poor drainage will be
susceptible to flooding. As the water works its way into the
rivers... river flooding will be possible in the upper Potomac
and Shenandoah basins.

Now - power is back on at the house, and no more flood warning for Calvert County.

After work, went to the back doctor - much more fruitful response this time. getting my epidural, physical therapy and etc... hopefully a bit more productive than "no hope blah blah" from last one. I get my epi in about a week, a flexion exercise program, ultrasound, electrical stim, and massage.

Saw Aardvark's Tara in her other work duds at Panera... she cleans up well! BHK and she gabbed a bit - the 2nd store is now closed primarily due to crooked employees making off with merch. Upside, that's more time for them to be social.. maybe we'll hang with them sometime soon! The Lusby store rocks the party that much more, too.

Ah, Virginia. You never let me down with the custom plates.

No relation to the flooding post, prior.

Two books for me to investigate library-wise. We saw 'em at the bookstore last week, and I think they'll be better as temporary reads rather than permanent additions to our collection. I may change my mind after reading 'em.
