23 powerless hours

At about 3:30 yesterday afternoon a storm hits home and the power goes out.

We had, of course, just done a ton of grocery shopping the previous evening.

Fortunately ComEd didn't take nearly as long top get our power back as they did last time and it seems that our food did not completely defrost.  Some of the ice cream in the chest freezer got soft, but everything else seems fine.

Note about the Palm Pre: It is not a good phone for these situations.  The battery life sucks.  I charged it from a power inverter in my car once and again from the laptop USB port.
