The hurricane was not trivial, not something to laugh at, and not at all picturesque: people died in the floods.
But that was not my hurricane experience, not at all. I got a lot of rain. I lost power. And I spent a few hours playing Catan variations by lamplight with my lovely Gamer Girl.
Half inconvenience, half romantic, I must guiltily confess that I enjoyed the hurricane.
Meanwhile the floods continue throughout this week.
Life is weird.
An unscheduled postcard, brought about by an unscheduled internet outage.
“Time Warner Cable”, I want to say in my best and most dramatic Darth Vader voice, “you have failed me for the last time”.
Except no, they have a monopoly on internet service here, they are going to continue to fail me. Forever, failure after failure, cascading into the vast and unknowable future.
But at least I am not bitter.
See you tomorrow.
