The blackout started 5 minutes from my house...

See the towers in that picture? I can see those out my window. Whee.

As long as I’m announcing pointless things: I think I’m dying from a poison slurpee.

Apparently there was a water crisis in Cleveland due to the blackout and water wasn’t getting filtered properly. I live far east enough of the city to be on a seperate water table and thought we were unaffected. Found out that at my work they had problems with the water - ended up having a slurpee from a 7-11 not far off from there and now I’m feeling all weird.

But damn it, if I had to, I’d do it all over again. I’m hooked on slurpees.
