Never even blinked out here. Hope you guys didn't lose any flying over it. But the main thing everybody is okay. Better get some gas for your generators.

Since my wife is between semesters, and has to work all summer I didn't take any vacation this year. I just sprinkled my vacation days around so I'd end up with alot of long week ends (short work weeks). This week was SUPPOSED to be my first full week in over a month.
Since MR. Eves said for us to stay home, I got another short work week!!

We got power in Orangeville about 4:30am Friday morning. The wife and I spent Thursday night out on the front porch watching the meteor shower. (everybody now.......aaaaahhhhhh) Haven't been to bed that early all summer!!
