Tuesday.

Hello again, dear journal.

Creaking along, but my back and leg pain isn’t as bad as it was yesterday, and certainly not like it was on the weekend.

Conversation this morning was all about mental health, child care and…

THE BRONTOSAURUS IS OFFICIALLY A DINOSAUR AGAIN!

I’m far too excited about that.

Flashback to April 2003 again – out with Ldy at Ole Ole – just a few strands of silver in the beard. Good grief… was that really a dozen years ago?

Coloring book items. Ah, I miss doing stuff in my old LiveJournal coloring book community. I’ve created a new pinterest board to track future coloring pages.

Power outages throughout Southern Maryland (St. Mary’s)

According to reports the generating plant at Chalk Point is connected to a substation on Ryceville Road in Charles County. The insulator from this line failed and released the power line that connects to the substation which caught on fire when it hit the ground. Reports say the explosion was over 100 feet tall.

SMECO lineman, Kevin Thomas, said PEPCO and SMECO are jointly investigating the explosion, there is no estimate as to how long it will take to repair the substation. The utility companies are in the process of switching the power as a work-around. When asked why this substation was causing such a large outage Thomas said that this transmission line goes over the entire United States.

Power is beginning to be restored throughout the area.


Update:
Power outages may be linked to a switching station located in Charles County on Ryceville Road. Reports are also being made that 13 metro stations are without power.

There have been reported power outages across the entire Southern Maryland area.

Traffic lights out throughout Southern Maryland – treat intersections as a 4 WAY STOP & PROCEED WITH CAUTION.

Be on lookout for police on foot at intersections controlling traffic.
