Nixon's Memoirs: Thunderstorms

Thunderstorms

Monday was the beginning of what has been a stormy week, in more ways than one.

The thunderstorm on Monday knocked my power out around 2pm. Not a problem for most, but I sleep during the day, and use a C-PAP machine I need to sleep.

I discovered later that day, when the power was restored, that my computer no longer functioned. It would power up, but nothing was getting to the monitor, which claimed in it's defense, that IT was working perfectly after a self-test.

The second storm occured when discussing with the wife how to replace the computer. It got ugly, and I said a lot of things I regret, which I have since apologized for. But, after ruining a delightful young lady at Gateway's day by cancelling my order for a new laptop (at my wife's request) I decided to got the Cheapo-Depot route.

Thus, friends and curious onlookers, I now blog to you from the tiny, finger-cramping keyboard of a MSN-TV device.

Will this storm ever end?
