--Work Christmas party today. IMAX, lunch, a few games and a cookie exchange. Good enough. At least it is all conducted on work time and I get paid mileage for going there.
--My mom lost power when the tornado came thru at 12:35 a.m. on Friday night/Saturday morning. She did not get it restored until 4:30 p.m. yesterday.
Just as much to do with a shitty power company as it was with the tornado.
--One man was killed due to the tornado. He was on the second floor of the hotel on the end that took the direct hit. Our lumber store took extensive damage too as did the car dealership. I don’t feel so sorry for the dealership. It’s GM and the government gave them a ton of money on the bailout a few years ago and that’s when they constructed their fancy showroom and such. It’s not like they paid for it.
--I have a cold.
I don’t have much going on this week so that is good. I think I might take advantage of a little of my sick time.
--We’re supposed to go to Iowa this weekend for a surprise birthday party for Iowa’s mom but we’re going to need to watch the weather. It does not look good.
--Neighbors are having a little Christmas party get together next Sunday evening. That’s nice. I might be that neighborly too if I had a house to entertain in.
