. . .and Brimstone

10 Jul

First there was fire (drill) and soon there will be hail. They’re calling for hail the size of quarters up around these parts. This bites because it guarantees that my power will be knocked out yet again. That will be the 4th fucking time this year.

Why? Why must my neighborhood have such tall trees that find it amusing to land on powerlines? WHY?? It’s too hot to be dealing with that type of nonsense and I’m still tired from this weekend. Can’t I just go home and take a little nap? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! I have to go home and worry about the upcoming power outage.

Stupid BGE, I hate you.

    I’m sorry about your hail in July. Power outages suck. Isn’t brimstone the same thing as sulphur though? Eh, whatevs, go take a nap in the supply closet with Lil’ Smokey and forget about your worries.

    Power outtage is actually extremely conducive to sleeping. Just make sure everything is “off” before crashing, cause it sucks to be sound asleep and then everything comes on in a “Blaze of Glory” to scare the bejeebers out of you!

    But we are all supposed to love tall trees… even if they cause our life stress and power-outages. I bet Al Gore chopped all of the trees around his house so he would not lose power. 🙂

    My neighborhood has a tall tree … well it’s actually kind of medium-sized … that’s what I get for living in the frickin desert. But we still get hail and we still have power-outages … go figure.

    I remember hail… but I always saw it in winter. Hail when it’s hot? It makes no sense to me. None at all.

    Fire and hail? I swear every year gets weirder…..

    I’m not a meteorological expert, but hail definitely happens when it’s hot, too. I’ve seen a goodly bit it FL, and none of it happened when it was cold(ish) outside.

    Beatrix Kiddo: Brimstone really has nothing to do with hail, but I thought the title was a little catchier. I ended up leaving work early because I was still exhausted from my night of debauched sex with Notebook.

    Cinnkitty: The power outages aren’t that bad, unless it’s hot as sin. I was afraid I’d start to bake if the AC went off.

    5 of 9er: I love trees, just not when they lose their branches in power lines. That’s just not cool.

    Paul Champagne: What do you blame the power outages on if it’s not the tree branches? I don’t get it?

    Ambiguous Blob: It’s really freaking weird. I don’t know what to tell you.

    Princess Extraordinaire: Next it’ll be frogs falling from the sky.

    Red: It’s a weird thing to see.
