The wind is whipping around our neck of the woods, pounding our house, and threatening the stability of the Thursday recycling piles.
At work, I'm hearing periodic beeps from the UPS systems and the lights are flickering. The newspaper reports downed trees blocking roads. I wouldn't be surprised if there ends up being a major power outage at some point.
Days like today, I feel impatient with our 100-year-old grid. I want to rip off the roof of my house and re-do it with solar shingles. I want to insulate the crap out of the whole damned house. I want power lines to go the way of the dodo and never ever come back.
