It is time to rant.

It is Monday, December 4. My home, and about 40 percent of my zipcode, has been without power since just before midnight, Novermber 30. This is getting old, not to mention it is the second time in 5 months that there has been a major power outage affecting at least a half million people in this community. I know ice storms are an act of nature, but this is ridiculous. I've been staying at a friends, but my husband is sleeping at the house with the dogs. We're lucky of course--we have options. There have already been half a dozen deaths from this ridiculous situation.

On the plus side, I have done quite a bit of knitting on my Lush sweater. The back and left side are done, and the right side should be complete soon.

I'm glad that you have someplace to go to get warm. I feel somehow guilty that we didn't lose power with either set of storms, & I'm a bit worried about some of the STL bloggers who haven't posted or commented since last week.

Several of my coworkers lost fish this round, due to the water in the tanks getting too cold & fish being harder to transport than other pets.
