Random Thoughts on a Saturday

Rita Lucero is blogging today on Killer Characters (where your favorite cozy characters do the talking.) Rita's sharing a few thoughts about organizing your kitchen and pantry. Stop by and say hello, and check out what she has to say about Cooks, Nooks and Crannies!

Also, just a quick note to let those of you who've been asking, The Cakes of Wrath was released on September 3. It's available to purchase in your favorite brick & mortar book stores and online outlets.

The weather is moderating a bit here along the Gulf Coast, but the random and unexplained power outages continue. We've lost power twice already this morning. Luckily, today's outages (so far) have lasted only a few minutes, as opposed to those that have dragged on for hours at a time, but can I just tell you how tired I am of resetting the clocks? 

I understood the problem when we were having severe thunderstorms every day all summer long. I understood it when we were under continuous flash flood warnings. But the weather has cleared after three long months of rain and the temperatures have dropped at least 15 degrees, but the power is still going out every day. 

So my question of the day is this: Has anyone else been experiencing weird and unexplained (and sometimes very lengthy) power outages?
