For now, since I don't have any surge protector strips for my electronics, I'm going to leave my laptop and things unplugged. I've been trying to cook bacon for the last hour as the power comes and goes on my two burner electric grill. My Coleman propane lantern has been turned on about four times. I finally just decided to use the light on my cell phone since the power comes back on usually within ten minutes or so.
Argh. It just went out again. Man, it gets REAL quiet out here with no power on. Anyway, my last few strips of bacon are sizzling. Gonna throw them on some bread with some mayo and call it a night. It's a little after midnight and I have to report to work at 8am for a few hours. Wonder how much sleep I'm going to get with the loud thunder crashes and flickering of lights (including the powerful "Mercury light" outside the farm house).
Wifey's birthday is this Friday. Gotta figure out what I'm going to do. I've never been away before on her birthday in the 15 years we've been married. We were driving back to Arizona from the recent Oklahoma funeral on my birthday in May. Not a memorable year for birthdays apparently...
For those of you kind souls who have donated to our PayPal account...it is very much appreciated. You may have just enabled me to pay Wifey a surprise visit for her birthday...but don't tell her! It'll be a surprise!
