last night there was another humungaloid thunderstorm in memphis (where i live) knocking out power to most of the city that matters (i.e.--midtown, where i live), downing trees and powerlines, etc.
obviously, i have power again, but a lot of the traffic lights are still out and some of the roads are still choked with debris and/or flooded and frankly, next to impassable in some places. knowing memphis, this will probably not be rectified until early next week. (well, except for the flooding since that will take care of itself.)
leff has footage of a street light trying to blow itself to smithereens.
in the meantime, i'm going to settle my internal debate about whether or not i should risk life and limb dealing with memphis drivers (oh, they're bad in sunny weather!) to get to a job that i care practically nothing about.
oh, and find clouseau (one of the cats). he's been hiding since around 2 am.
update: found the cat and not going to work! hooray!
