BLACKOUT CITY: Sorry for the

BLACKOUT CITY: Sorry for the lack of posting today–the power and cable modem were up and down all day. We were without power for several hours in the morning, then got it back, but the cable modem took several hours more to come back. Then we lost power around 6:30 p.m. At that point my wife and I did what any sensible couple in that situation would do: headed out for sushi.

We’re back. Power’s back. Cable modem’s back.

For now….

(Incidentally, I can’t blame this one on Gray Davis. It’s been over 100 degrees for the past two or three days, and apparently, a transformer in our neighborhood simply buckled under from the heat. Probably something similar affected Comcast’s cables.)
