Silly Site o' the Day

Wow. We've just endured a few minutes of the worst tornadic storm I've ever seen out of our front window, followed immediately by 5+ hours of no electricity. Here's the report from a local news station:

Obviously, the electric has just come back on (say what you will, Con Ed does a bang-up job, at least in our neighborhood) and the ACs are once more operational. Update: The power continues to be sporadic. Not a surprise considering what the crews around here have to deal with Still, a cautious Hoorah, I can sleep tonight! And I can breathe again! Let's celebrate the wonders of Oxygen!
