Daaaaaaammmmmnnnn!

Heaven to hell and back again!

Last night the sky opened up and took a giant shit on St. Louis. A bitch’s house and office are without power…it’s going to be 100 degrees in the shade today…and my ass has only had one cup of coffee.

Fuck.

This bitch is hold up in a conference room at C-Money’s office…with Betsey the sorta-beagle…and Sweetie the Three Legged Chow.

Anyway, we are all fine and thanks for the e-mails of concern. This storm was weird, but a bitch wasn’t surprised. Three days of extreme heat almost always equals storm based drama in St. Louis...inconvenient but true.

To my brothers and sisters in St. Louis…be kind, check on your neighbors and encourage folks to go cool down at the mall or a cool space.

Toodles for now…

Glad you and yours made it through safely. We had our own drama Tuesday night!

I have to admit -- sometimes, I root for the natural disaster. Thunderstorms, hurricanes, blizzards...

Until it knocks the power out in my neighborhood for thirty hours!

Off topic.
Shark-fu, I went to buy some Sudafed yesterday - whadafuck??? What is this not pseudephedrine nonsense??? Gah! So I had to buy some Advil Cold and Sinus instead, figuring that the ibuprofin could only be good for me and if it wasn't, liver damage or whatever was totally worth getting the real decongestant deal!

my home is not too far from your office, and i'm (still) without power.

what aggravates me is that everyone across the street from me has electricity. i've never seen so many extension cords in my life.

Todd said...

I thought of you and your tribe when I saw the news reports. I knew if it was bad in Chicago it was probably worse in St. Louis. I'm glad to hear all is well.

Stay cool and hydrated!! Just read about the storm just now! Be safe!

High drama in St. Louis!

Take care and keep cool.

Glad that you and yours are all in one piece. Even here in Brooklyn a week's worth of extreme heat and humidity just led to the kind of thunder and lightning show that had the dog (not usually one to be cowed) under the couch. And this past Monday the electricity went out up and down the entire block that included the Park Slope Food Co-op. I spent Tuesday throwing out lettuce by flashlight, racing what could be salvaged to homeless shelters, and throwing out tens out thousands of dollars of dairy, meat, and frozen goods that couldn't be safely consumed.

Hope that your lights come on soon. If you get too cranky, have C-Money put you down with a bottle and a toy.

Since ABB hasn't posted today, no doubt because she has no power yet, I thought I should let you know we got hit with another storm this morning. Some of the people who got their power back lost it again and a whole new set of people lost power. At least it's a bit cooler, only in the 80's today.

Emily in FL said...

ABB, I had two thoughts:

1. How is ABB?
2. Will I get my ABB fix today?

I am delighted to see that both have been answered to my satisfaction.

Gosh I hope you get your power back soon. No air conditioning in heat and humidity sucks. I'm in NY, and we were lucky not to have lost power at home -- this time. But, the storm Tuesday night did bring down a tree in my parking lot, right onto the front windshield of my car -- which of course shattered.

We just had another storm a couple of hours ago, and the power went out in the grocery store where I was shopping just as I scanned my debit card. We had to run it through three times to clear, and I just hope that when the bank comes back online I don't have three debits instead of one.

Daaaaaaaam is right! Good Lord, Mother Nature must be pissed about something. I was lucky enough to only lose power for four hours after the first storm, but the second storm did me in for another 36.

Lost all the food in the fridge, but thank God it's cooler. Hope all is well with you. Love the blog.

Veronica said...

Keeping you, yours, and everyone else without power in prayer. This heat wave is traveling from state to state. Not wanting it to happen, but it could happen where I live also. The power companies have to be having an overload trying to keep businesses and homes cool every place.

I know that your readers will have a lot to read when you update your blog. Looking forward to reading it when you return. God Bless!

spiral said...

Hope you're doing okay. My sis who lives near St. Louis says many people are still without power, and I know the heat is starting back up again after a little down turn here on the other side of the state.

ABB, I'm glad you and the puppies have someplace cool to hang out at.
