In case you hadn't heard, a lot of eastern states lost their power this weekend. Michigan was one of those fortunate states. I was at work when it happened, and I called JoDee to let her know the power was out. Imagine my surprose when I realized our power was out too. Not a good scene. They let us out, and I spent a good long time driving to my parents place to wait out the remaining traffic. Fortunately I was able to get home later that night, and we saw an amazing sight that most astronomers would kill to see: a dark night sky (save for the fair that was going on a few miles away). Ruth still doesn't have power, but we're coping well. :)
Hope you're all having fun as well. Make the best of it. We're almost out of the woods!
