Damn these outages

First a power outage (a squirrel ate through a transformer, or so PECO claims) and then a cable outage. Pttooey. More soon.

Your electric company gives excuses for power outages? Nice! Our's reminds me of the Soup Nazi: 85 degrees and 70% humidity? No power for you!

Long years ago I was living in an apartment in Athens, GA. One day I was listening to a record (on a turntable -- it was a LONG time ago!) when I heard a loud POP! and the power went out. The noise had sounded like it was nearby, so I walked outside. Near a power pole was the still-quivering body of a squirrel. So yes, squirrel-cause power outages do happen, albeit rarely. :)

We just had a squirrel power outage at the office. This is creepy. Is there some kind of conspiracy going on?

Survival of the fittest among the squirrels - this year's elimination of the new crop.
We had that happen once when I was in CA - it makes the loudest most awful bang outside your house and small children just put to bed for their naps object. Strenuously.

Tis the season of suicidal squirrels--haven't you seen them playing chicken in the roads lately?

Thanks for the link to 'I Blame the Patriarchy'. When you don't have an entry, I click over and it always a fun ride. I had been doing the Manolo's Shoe Blog, but that simply brought out my covetous nature, which is never a good thing....

Did the dog eat your homework, too?

No, but a tick ate my brain.

Isn't that cute? You miss me. "You like me! You really like me!"

I'm posting later today, so don't get your panties in a wad. (Or if it's too late, unwedgie yourself.)
