I would like to give a very big thank you to the local power company for the blackouts and fritzes that have been going on with the power lately. For the second time this week, and the fourth (roughly) in two weeks, we lost power for about 4 hours tonight.

While I appreciate that they are willing to help me so mightily in our family project of energy savings, I question their wisdom in doing so when one of the worst heat waves in history is gripping much of the nation.
