Tales of the storm

So, Thursday for me.

When I got to work in Raleigh, I noticed that all three flags (NC, USA,
Red Hat, in that order) were up and flying. After we finished our lunch
meeting, we noticed that they ahd taken down the NC and US flags, but
not the company flag. Thought the obvious, but oh well.

It was at this point I realized I was getting a cold, too.

Came home after they closed the Raleigh RHAT offices for the day. The drive over Jordan Lake was *FUN* in the Accord. Of course, we were out of dog food, so to Food Lion I go. Might as well grab some milk, since *OF COURSE* we’re short on that (hey, with two kids, we go through a lot of milk). No worries, and I’m in and out in a snap.

When i got home, we had power, and the kids were OK. Shortly after I got there, ‘net access went down, buy c’est la vie. Spent time getting the last few items together – fresh batteries and the like. Then it was playtime. Renee had a shower and a nap, and the boys and the dog and I chilled.

Even after the power went out at 4, it was playtime. Power back on at 5, it’s all good. start getting things back up and running. No worries, just charge everytyhing that I can back up (cel phone, GBA SP) add to the water stash, and think about dinner.

Power out at 6. no worres, it only took an hour last time, right?

Riiight. Cooked dinner on the grill in the garage. Ate a buttload of icecream for desert. Waited. Played. Kids get hyper, Dog get hyper, finally time for bed. Get Ray to bed, Renee and Jacob relax until Jacob drops off, and I play FF Tactics Advance until I’m about to drop off. 9:30pm

Power comes on at 10:30. And I can’t get back to sleep. Grrr. So I make sure everything works, set some clocks, and putz around until I can sleep.

power goes out for about 30 mins at 3. No worries. Gte up to my alarm, get ready and go to work.

Get to work this morning, and find the remains of the corporate flag in the break room. Like we didn’t know *THAT* was comming.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Glad you are getting through it relatively unscathed.
