Oy, wudda week! Dunno if you guys heard but Chicago got rocked by a storm last Monday, which is precisely why we didn’t update last week. (Sorry ’bout that.) I could say why, but this picture sums it up pretty well.
That fell at about eight in the morning. Took off a chunk of the… the thing on the porch. I still don’t know what it’s called. But on the way down it hacked off some of our trees (as the limb that fell in the picture was our neighbors) but *his* neighbor’s tree took down the actual power lines. And it took five days and crews all the way from Alabama and Georgia to get us back up and running. (Well, not just ours, you big sillies. Over 800,000 lost power, so they needed reinforcements.) There are still a few homes unpowered, and a nasty, nasty heat wave is about to arrive. Here’s hoping everyone is up and running before those triple digit heat indexes start to march out.
You’d think a period of time passes and there’d be stuff to talk about, but unfortunately all is quiet in terms of news, so I can’t really add much here. Nothing new on his blog, twitter wasn’t really that helpful, but how’s about this for an epic kudos from the ol’ Notchster:
“congratulations on the sex!” (source)
Well said. (Hey, if you can’t be informative, at least be entertaining. Right, Fox?)
Buildin’ Stuff Front
On the actual playing side of things, I was lucky enough to play a bit with the Misses this week after the power willed itself back to existence. We got a local server thing goin’ and I helped out on her Hotel buildin’. She wants to connect far away stuff via a railway system and a few strategic train stations to either pit stop and explore or to simply help choose your destination. We’ll be working more on that one in the next few. Hope all is well in your worlds, in-game and out, and we’ll see ya in the ‘Craft next week!
