Coupl'a Things VI

1) It was inevitable, gas is $4.00 a gallon here now. Missouri and specifically Kansas City had some of the cheapest gas in the country. Odd that we feel gas below $4 is cheap.

2) So McCain is a flip flop and so is Obama. I'd rather have someone realize they made a mistake than have a "leader" like Bush and Boy-Gov who are so damn arrogant they can't admit they are wrong even when it means people die. Hard headedness and arrogance are bigger "sins" than flip-flop, although FOX would not agree.

3)Quite a storm last night. While finishing my drinking and dining at 303, it began to pour. Then the hail came, then lightning, wind, rain and all sorts of fun. Steve reported water covering a lot of the roads as he drove home.

Power was out at the Towers, though not all over. I had ceiling lights in the living room and bedroom but not in the kitchen and bath. In the kitchen the appliances were on. I had some outlets working, some not. An extension cord powered the computer and table lamp.. but with no internet and cable, I was not sure what was going on. The building gets power from several sources, what power is on depends on which grid is out. We had some lights in the hall, the light was on in the elevator, but the elevator was off. All was back about 8;30AM. The skinflints here were thrilled, we saved a few $ having the power off.
