We're fine; the lack of updates is due to the lack of power.  We're running the generator for about an hour out of every four or five, to keep the refrigerator and freezer cold, and to charge our cell phones, but it takes a lot more to charge the UPS for the computers and home phone.

So far every hurricane has resulted in a three-day power outage.  We're hoping for something less this time, but Duke Energy isn't saying.

More tomorrow, one way or another.

11:15 PM - running generator until midnight:15. Saw a Duke power truck go by, but still no power for us yet.

Power on. I'm not usually so happy to be awakened in the middle oF the night. We forgot to turn the lights off when we went to bed.
