We made coffee (OMG! it was so good!), and some breakfast. And we put things back into refrigerator, having packed them into the coolers.
When the ComEd truck came by this morning around 6:00a.m., and we saw that the guy was checking the transformer and things in our yard, we at least knew they were looking for the problem. It wasn't here, but obviously they found the problem. Outages were all over the county. 30 people in our area were affected by it.
The news from the mid-section of the U.S. was much worse. Five people died when a tornado hit the town. The tornado actually hit the tower, which supplies the electricity for the sirens. It was almost as if it aimed for it--I know that's impossible, but the sirens didn't go off to warn people. I sometimes think these storms/tornadoes have become smarter, and more ruthless these days.
Tonight will be our turn as the cold front advances after the warm front that will boost our temperatures to at least 80. Things will get rather "dicey" according to meteorologist.
I actually wanted to bring you something more interesting, and will, once I'm able to work on this (research it), about Nicolas Cage possibly being a vampire from the Civil War era (tell me if you've heard this one). I'll try and get my post set up for later in the week so please keep checking in. Hopefully a tornado won't end my ability to do this for ever. If you are concerned, thanks. And if you see me posting both my Monday Coffee Klatch and Tuesday Teasers, you can rest assured we have been spared. These have been some deadly tornadoes lately.
Bloody Good Vampires. Once we get things figured out, my books and links will be on the side bar, and we will both make posts on it, plus we plan on a corresponding group on facebook where people can join up--for both authors and readers of vampire, horror/Gothic horror, and the supernatural. More on that as we get things built up.
Hope to see you tomorrow!
