Making it Through Isaac
Thank you internet gods for delivering yourself back to me! I have internet access for the first time in 24 hours and you'd swear that I've gone months without it. Sad really. So I'm blogging now just to blog. We're at my sister's boyfriend's house right now who I think may be one of the only people left in the city with power and internet and cable. There are currently 700,000 people without power right now in Louisiana and we were one of them. It actually really wasn't bad being without power. As long as you stayed still it wasn't too hot, I got to read Shadow Show, the new tribute to Ray Bradbury anthology by candlelight and it was all rather peaceful and a bit moody in a good way. I suspect Shadow Show will be for me what Four and Twenty Blackbirds by Cherie Priest was for Hurricane Gustav. I will always associate Four and Twenty Blackbirds with Hurricane Gustav and listening to the winds howl.
