So, bear with me here: I'm typing this out on my phone. Our power is completely out. It's been out since around 3:30 or 4:00 this afternoon. At this point, I'm not hopeful that it will be back on before tomorrow sometime.

We had warm Spaghetti-Os before the power went off and cold baked beans after we lost it.

Luci has been incredibly clingy, even for her, since the power went out, right next to one or both of us, especially when the wind picks up again. Given that that keeps happening pretty frequently, it should probably be no surprise that she's been right here as much as she can. Boo has spent the entire day under the bed, so no surprises there.

It amuses me a little that Roswell has lost power, but where Mum lives in Albany only lost water for an hour or so. She got hit with more of the wind and rain than we did, but we're the ones who have been without power. Of course the Atlanta area is woefully underprepared for a tropical storm, so there is a that.

Sadly, this does mean that I didn't get a lot written today. Mostly I did some editing before the power went off, and I'll be counting this entry towards my words for the day.

[personal profile] katsuko had today off IKEA for the weather, but apparently they're expecting people to go in tomorrow. I'm... not happy about this. MARTA is still down, as is Uber, and a lot of roads have debris and standing water on them. I haven't heard how the waterways are looking, but I imagine that the Chattahoochee is up significantly, given the amount of rain we've had so far.

And it's no surprise that Mirko will be open tomorrow and that she is expected to go in or risk losing her job... and I think she wants to quit on her own terms.

And that's about it for me. Later.
