Thank goodness it’s warm (about 60) and I have an Egg to cook dinner. No worries here.

    The power is back on. I had to soldier through BGE meatloaf and kale braised in ham broth. Tough to take (not).

    I think power outages have to clear at least a week to garner any sympathy around here.  Too many have had major outages independent of time of year.  FWIW-

    A week would be a major PITA. We've not had one of those for 15 years or so. It was in the winter too. I burned a full cord of wood just to keep the house at 50*. We used the garage as a refrigerator so we didn't lose any food. Cooked meals on the grill or in the fireplace in a hanging stew pot. The funny part was that I lived in the city at the time and had a gas water heater so we had hot showers the whole time.

    Scottie my weather app says that it will get there about 6 pm. I am at Hattiesburg for the moment.

    Unfortunately it looks like several more hours of it is still on the way.

    We got lucky and it didn’t start getting really bad until right around 1:00pm. However it’s been really bad since it started. Has not slacked up for a second. The thunder, lightning and heavy rain has been relentless. 
    With that said, about 8 hours of the storm stayed just west of us. It was suppose to hit us last night and last all day. So I guess we got a little lucky.
