Power failure at Blog Central

We had a 15-minute power outage here at Blog Central about an hour ago. Portland infrastructure is so wimpy -- no doubt a snowflake landed directly on a wire.

Our array of backup generators failed when the bojack.org StormCenter 9000.2 hamster refused to get into his wheel. He's filed a grievance over alleged discrimination based on species. We can't comment further because the matter is in litigation.

Anyway, it's time to go reset a few clocks. Repeatedly re-learning how to work the remote on the DVD player is what keeps us young.

"You and PDX airport! What's up with that?!?"
Maybe the Luggage Thieves escalated to Copper Wire and Transformers...

Your hamster wouldn't get on the wheel because he just worked two 11 hour shifts in a 24 hour period.

Pretty weird that PDX only counts A's one "customer"! Pretty challenging situation there late this morning. Lots of flights delayed, connections elsewhere missed.

And the Port of Portland lived happily ever after....
