Its a little after 9:00 pm, and Gracie is outside barking at the moon. You've noticed the full moon, right? Last night she was out after midnight, bark bark barking. I hope she's getting it out of her system early for tonight....
We had a slight bit of excitement this afternoon. I headed home after work, and couldn't get into my neighborhood. The police, sheriff's office, and fire department had roadblocks enclosing the area in this map. On the news tonight, they said over 100 homes were evacuated and over 500 homes had electricity turned off for the duration of the "event".
I hope this embedded map works right - click on the plus sign to zoom in - when you can see the area I've enclosed, the upper mark is my home and the lower mark is the leak.
Oh, yeah, I DO feel a little bit geeky because I embedded the map! I just wish I could save it zoomed in like I wanted it.
Anyway, I called Joe, who was at home (but they let him leave). We went to the bar to have a beer and a burger, saw several peeps from our end of town there, and eventually someone got a call that the leak was fixed, power was back on, and we could go home. The incident lasted from around 3:00 pm until nearly 7:00 pm.
Woohoo, that's excitement in our town! :)
