Ugh. There's been some heavy freezing rain in my neck of the woods the past couple days. The kind that snaps power lines and bends trees in half. There has been flooding in other parts of the county, and it's not letting up anytime soon. I moved in with my parents a couple months ago after my wife and I separated. Since I live in the basement, I told my parents I'd stay up keep an eye on the sump pumps. There is so much ground water, it's taking 3 pumps just to keep up. A power outage would make things get ugly in a hurry. So...here I sit with flashlight in hand, fighting an internet connection that's been dropping every 10 minutes with my instruction on how to fire up the generator if the power goes out. Fun stuff. I think I'm on can of Mt. Dew #4.
