Ah, St. Louis weather is fun- five-minute summer storms that dump an inch of rain, knock out power, and make us unplug the computers...

It's pouring big time over here by Crestwood Mall!

Just imagine if the power in New York City went out as often as it does in St. Louis. When NYC's power goes out, it's national news!

It's doing the same thing here, in fact, has been all week. And I'm just south of the Illinois-Wisconsin line. St. Louis doesn't have all the thunder cornered down there. :)

Frequent power drops are the rule here too. We keep battery backups on most computers. Most outages only go for a second or two, just enough to make everything reboot.

Unplug your computers? That's weather induced menial labor, yet necessary. I suggest that we build a robot to unplug the computers (and other fine electronics) whenever the power goes out.

No. This is not an indiction that I've been reading too much Dragon-tails. :)
