And you pocket your dreams
You'd trade it all
To avoid an unpleasant scene
Can you face the fire when you see me there
Can you feel the fire will you love me
In the dark...
Billy Squire's "In The Dark" was going through my head last night as I waited for the electricity to come back on. Most of the north side of O'Fallon had no electricity, after yet ANOTHER storm blew through and knocked out juice to 40,000 customers. This, just one day after they restored power from the last outage of over a half-million houses.
Of course I had my laptop with full batteries and a Cingular air card, so I didn't miss any internet time. I wonder what that says about me...
Anyway, power's back on now. Trees are still down all over and if you step outside, you can hear the sound of a hundred chainsaws drifting across the countryside.
