So after "high winds" from Ike did some pretty good damage to Cincinnati (though no rain) we are now on day 3 without power. 750,000 customers lost power and so far over 550,000 still don't have it. But here are a few things I have learned.
1) Thank goodness the iPhone has the internet to keep me busy after I get sick of reading by flashlight.
2) The cats are unphased by the power outage. Really. They can't tell anything is different.
3) Cold showers do not give you much motivation to get up in the morning.
