Well, all the power is down and I am up in the radio shack right now. I am writing with a flashlight. The power went off about twenty to four in the morning. It is now 5:15 a.m., so we are just sitting in the river with no way of communicating with anybody.
I have to go wake the relief up in about 13 minutes, so they can worry about it then.
Well, I better stop because it could come on any minute now. I'll C U all later.
PS. I got paid 178 bucks yesterday
