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.

  • Third Pre's the charm?

    Ok, I have been using Palm Pre #3 for the last 24 hours. So far it seems to work. I will continue testing, but I'm happy so far.

  • Palm Pre, I just can't win....

    Less than 24 hours and the mic is dead and the button that lets me switch between application cards no longer works. This is not cool. I am on hold…

  • Palm Pre, redux

    The new Pre arrived today. It seems to work well and lacks the three dead pixels (not you, Pixel!) the other one's screen had. It did not take long…
