Trees are blowing like crazy here and the electric has flickered a few times.The filter on my one 20 gal decided not to power back up during one of the flickers so I had to jostle her a bit to get her back going again. Almost afraid to go to sleep incase it happens again!

Windy and rainy here in RI. One of the trees in the backyard cracked in half and fell and the storm isn't even fully here yet! I'm expecting to lose power later. I went to the store and bought a battery powered aerator for the tank (doing a fishless cycle so I'm glad I don't have fish in the tank yet but want to make sure the bacteria stay viable) and a battery powered fan (in case power goes out and it gets too hot). But I then went to 7 stores and no D batteries anywhere! My Dad had a few I took, so that's enough for the aerator but not the fan. Oh the irony.

It's nice and sunny here in Hampton Roads today. We lost power at 8 yesterday morning but power crews were on top of it and it was on within 2 hours. Luckily we have power today and all is well. My dad didn't fare so well though. He had minor flooding in the house over on Mill Creek across from Ft. Monroe. Hope everyone made/makes it through Irene.

So far, just a lot of flickering lights here, and one brown out for about 5 minutes(thank god for a UPS that can run the tank for 30 minutes or so). I already can see that my saw and I will be in overdrive tomorrow, and for the next few days.
