Jen and I just endured nearly 24 hours without power. Nearly 150,000 people were without power last night, including us. Under normal circumstances, we enjoy the occasional power outage. It’s a nice break from modern technology. But when you’re in the midst of packing for a cross-country move in two days and your apartment doesn’t get much natural light in the first place, it really, really sucks. Things were looking pretty dark for a while.

The power came back on about ten minutes ago and we’re feeling more recharged than ever now. We must. Only a day and a half of packing time to go. We really take power for granted in this country.

We had a great brunch at Tiff and Miguel’s this morning (though we had to bust before actually eating), then we head to Tim and Elizabeth’s for dinner tonight.

Tomorrow: Finish packing no matter what. Oh, and get the alignment done on my car since I had my new Continental ContiExtremeContact tires installed yesterday (at 25,918 miles).

    we ALWAYS appreciate power here on the east coast. and you should too, california folks – remember the days of the rolling blackout?
