Wizard Rocks, Electric Company Not So Much

It hit 112 degrees yesterday…and when it did, my power went out.

For four and a half hours.

By the time Wizard got home from work,  may have been a little cranky.  But Wizard pulled out his generator (all good Wizards have them) and hooked up the fans and the refrigerator.

Then he ordered pizza.

On days like yesterday, Wizard Totally Rocks!

But dang it was frustrated. A little before noon, I ate a quick lunch then I made myself clean, got back to my computer and started work thinking, I have a big chunk of time…

And the power goes off.

Does the electric company just hate me?

P.S. Yes I know it wasn’t really the electric companies fault, but did I mention the HEAT and DEADLINE STRESS? Reasonable is not in my vocabulary right now.

    :HUGS: Sorry both for your loss of work time and the sweltering heat. Thank goodness the Wizard is so awesome. Here’s to a cooler and more productive today. =o)

    I hope you spent those four hours in the pool so you were at least cool!?!

    And yay for Wizard! He gots a gold star and appletinis (or something a little less frou-frou. What are wizards drinking these days? — Oh, wait! I’ll just have to read THE BEAST WITHIN to find out!)

    Hope the temps go down. It finally cooled off a bit here. And here’s hoping you make up today what you missed yesterday on revisions. Sending wordy thoughts your way!

    Silver, we couldn’t go in the pool, a storm blew through so all I got to do was clean the pool :-)

    Glad it’s cooled off there! We’ve had a cool summer up to now, so I shouldn’t complain.
