The power got restored last evening seven days after the windstorm took down all the lines. I think that’s the longest I’ve ever been without electricity. I had planned to go out Christmas shopping last weekend but that didn’t happen as I spent the entire time cutting trees, provisioning backup power, and searching for fuel. I tried to do some shopping this morning in Bellevue. But, so did everyone else. I got into the mall but after getting pushed around for about ten minutes, I left that horrible place and went into work.
