Power outage today at work. I was in one of the few rooms in the office with no windows - excepting the restrooms.

Fortunately, my home was spared the outage (which is odd, given the rural area I live in, and the tin-can-and-string power grid out here). Whee! I'm home early. Maybe I'll go see a movie to celebrate.

Also, speaking of forces of nature - let us take a moment to remember that 25 years ago, today, Mt. St. Helens erupted, sending a huge amount of the mountainside up into the air and a fair amount down the mountainside. 57 people died that day as a result. I imagine many many more were injured. There are still people around here that think of things the way they were more than 25 years ago, like "yeah, they have a view of St. Helens... er, I don't know. I guess they used to have a view of St. Helens...".

It's a big, dangerous world, one which for the most part doesn't care about your welfare. But there are people that do care, so for their sake, be careful out there, OK?
