Electricity’s in the air

The power keeps cutting in and out because of the thunderstorm that’s passing by. The computers, of course, have no UPSes. That’s a special privilege reserved for the servers. So every couple of minutes I lose whatever I haven’t saved yet. Then I have to fumble around in the dark, because they built our basement without any windows. And then, when the power comes back on, I have to wait for a reboot. I think that’s my cue to head home.

Of course, looking at how bright these lightning flashes are, I might just want to stay indoors until it passes. I like not having grey streaks in my hair, thank you.
