A Thirst for Power

Today, we awoke again with no power, now past 30 hours with no heat. The water is gone as well and we are on our last few percentages of stored power in our phones and laptops. So this might be my last post until power is restored.

It has stopped snowing at least (but more is forecast for tomorrow) but the temperature is down to 11 degrees (-12C) and won’t be above freezing for at least another 30 hours according to the forecast.

So we’ve got that going for us, which is nice.

The boys are in surprisingly good spirits despite the fact that this is actually vacation for them—they would have much preferred all this while school was in session.

So we are hanging in there, much more worried about those who are less fortunate.

What time am I allowed to start drinking?

About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

    Come on. You know what they say. It’s five o’clock somewhere. Our worst experience was in Houston in 1982. All outside pipes froze. Houses aren’t built for such temps. Did you see the post I put on your FB page? From a Texan friend in Austin. Good luck.

    You ask when you can start drinking. I’m surprised to learn you had stopped!
