On the plus side, our electricity got turned back on yesterday. I got home to a gentle cool breeze coming out of every heating vent. Air conditioning is God's gift to mankind. The moment I got in the door, I laid down on the couch nearest to a vent and basked in the chilled, filtered air. Still won't have a working telephone line until next week, but I think we'll survive now.
And now, a test.
Theoretically, that image should show. I want to see if Yahoo's photo albums allow remote linking. If so, I've got 30 meg of image hosting I didn't know about. For those who weren't reading my journal back in September of 2001, that's a picture I took of a non-denominational church near my office that was under construction. I took the liberty of photoshopping it a little for effect (darkening it and giving it a generally ominous look), but the sign on the building is authentic.
