Despite concerns over how a hot, dry weekend would be no help to farmers, we got just enough rain (and cool air) here in the cities to breathe a little sigh of relief.
MPR's weather report indicated rain Sunday. What it couldn't predict was a complete power knock out! While neighbors across the street had e-lec-tri-city, we were a family in the dark. Secretly I found it kind of nice: the television powered down abruptely and although we didn't have fans running there was enough cool air moving around the house to feel like a fresh new day. Then the battery powered iPod came out. *throws hands into air*
At any rate, I was able to report the outage with a call made on the old-fashionedesque kitchen wall phone and it only took a few hours before the house hummed back to life.
How was the weather in your neighborhood?Â
