SPN: Sam's Bright Smile

and all I really want to do is read Big Bangs

It's been a rough night. There was a bad, bad storm last night that knocked all the electricity out. About midnight I woke up to discover that the power was back on but that my AC was not. (It was 86 degrees at midnight, FYI.) So I fiddled with things, called my parents for advice, etc. Nothing worked. No AC.

I moved into my guest room (which has a ceiling fan) and attempted to get a bit of sleep, but it was rough going.

Woke up this morning to find that, in addition to no AC, parts of my computer have power (monitor, printer) and parts do not (tower, external hard drive). Same with my TV -- the alarm clock I have plugged into the same outlet has power but the TV, DVR and DVD player do not. Annnddd my stove. The gas burners work but the electronic control pad for the oven does not. I feel pretty certain all of it got fried despite being on surge protectors. I really do not know what to do.

This morning I took the dogs to the kennel as there is no way they can stay all day in a house with no air. Then I came into work 90 minutes early. This is our late night, so I'll be here from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. I am QUITE unexcited for such a long day on no sleep. On the other hand! There is AC here!

My parents found a repair guy who could come look at the AC this afternoon and they're willing to meet him, which I am so thankful for. I am hoping against hope that they also will discover some SOMETHING that will let all my electronic stuff work again.

Anyway, blahablahablahblah. SIGH.
