At 2:52 this morning we had an incredible thunder storm. It was so severe, it even made ME jump and they normally don't bother me.

...So when I got up to make my coffee and check my e-mails, I had no electrity in my kitchen. I didn't notice it at first since when the electric goes off the lighting gets switched over to the battery that's on the outside. I checked the breakers, no problem. Haven't figured out what's wrong yet so I re-routed everything into the living room to get my fixes for now.

I wonder what else isn't working this morning.

I'll have to ask Kenny later and see if he has any ideas on what's wrong.

-------------------

"Cash for Clunkers" is back on for now. It was packed at the dealership yesterday. We were so busy that I had to get names and phone numbers from people that called in since all the sales people were busy with customers.

We are closed today, but a hand full of people will be inside finishing the huge amount of paperwork that is required by the government.

------------------

I have a couple of field chases to do this morning and still have to do the sketch. I'll have to download Google Sketches on my other laptop because for some reason it's not working on this one. I might as well save everything from this computer on an external hard drive, since this one is acting up. I'll have to see if I have a restore disk and maybe reformat this laptop. I keep putting it off since it's such a time hog. Rat Bastard!!!

Well...off to my monthly shower. Just kidding, water is my friend. :)

-------------

There, I fixed it.
I found the one and only reset button on an outlet. It was covered with the huge plug that comes with my blow dryer. Phew!! No money spent!!! I'm such a happy woman....Yeah, I know, it doesn't take much these days :)

  2. I hear ya, KayDee, shit always happens, doesn't it?

    My Mom is terrified of thunderstorms too. She goes in the basement.

    I remember when my sisters and I were kids, she used to get us out of the bed in the middle of the night when it started storming. She would get us all dressed. Then we would sit on the couch, Mom armed with her purse containing all important papers in life.

    Ha, I stole Rat Bastard from Guy. :)

    Please spread the word of the "rat bastard."
