Beer really does make it all seem nearly OK. Nearly, though. When we lost
power for a week last year, I must say that it sucked mightily. Not only
that, but my whole company went on a business trip to San Diego. I missed
the plane, though, because I couldn't get around the downed power lines and
trees in time to get to the airport. So the next day all my friends were on
the beach in San Diego, sunning themselves, and I was at home in the dark
eating a cold dinner in a house that was in the mid 30s. That sucked. But
you are right, it would have sucked a lot more if I didn't have my beer.
So, I vote for snow days WITH power.
