We had a fantastic thunderstorm last night, and ND really does need the moisture, but one of the drawbacks was the power outage this morning. That really didn't bother me...as it was a good excuse to light all the candles. What did cause me the momentary panic was the remembrance that I now work on the 8th floor of our building...with no power to the elevators.
Phew...the electric company came through at 7:10am. I'm saved!
