Storm in State College, Power woes, etc.
Hello, all. We had an all-time record early snow storm here in Central Pennsylvania the last couple of days. Wet snow in State College that knocked down trees (still full of leaves) and branches and caused a lot of power outages, including my house, which is surrounded by oak trees. I'm in the queue to have power restored (soon, they say, but keep pushing soon further and further back). I've been imposing on friends and neighbors for food and lodging (along with our local Starbucks for a little online access), but not only did our power cable go down, ditto for our Internet cable and telephone lines. I'll be out of commission for a couple of days. Don't worry. I'll be back soon.
