Well, that was an ordeal.
I lost power at about 3am last Thursday after the mighty snow storm and it just came on - meaning no heat, water, light, etc., etc. I am sadly diminished and may never fully recover. Maybe I will, though - now that things are on the path to normalcy. It has been cold - see-your-breath cold at first - 24 hours a day for days.
I thought it went out Wednesday but now I'm not sure so will say Thursday. What's one day to an eternity, anyway.
I need to clarify: what follows is two old posts from the iPod which, of course, I could write but not post at the time. They are not new, I have power now. Sorry for the confusion.
From the stupid iPod which has no staying power:
Day two with no power, heat, light, or water. I can see my breath! This is turning into an ordeal, but heigh ho, it's an adventure!
Stupid iPod will run out of juice long before it would be justified. I can see the screen in the dark which makes it useful since it's more or less dark all day. It's 8:49 am and dark ATM :p
*checks the time*
Come back, Little Trizzities!
The power went out at about 3am yesterday; I spent most of the day in bed but that's less of an option today as it makes my back hurt and generally does me no good whatsoever. It's well above freezing now, however I'm in an ice cave, more or less, with snow and ice all around. All day and night huge slabs of snowy ice were catapulting themselves of the roof and down three storeys to the ground, hitting the railing the way. The sound was tremendous.
OK it's 10:24. This is officially old.
I saw weak amber flashes last night (power crews at work) which made me think there'd be power today :(
I got this iPod case for its lanyard, but another style is needed as it's too thick and also makes taking pictures near impossible for me (though as I had thought the flap makes a stand useful for video, a bit). It would work better for me the other way around. Ah, well.
Typing isn't too awful on it for me, which is a miracle.

After this ordeal, what are your thoughts on being cryogenically frozen until such a time that your consciousness can be adequately transferred into a bio-robotic positronic-based construct? With options to either A) keep awake in an SL, or more likely medically-oriented OpenSim grid or B) stay asleep until that day occurs.
