Oh Yeah!....

Friday, February 17, 2006

The power went out at midnight last night. There was no bad weather and not a hint of wind. After being on hold with the Power Company for twenty minutes, we're told that a car hit a pole and knocked the entire pole out. Not so strange, but the pole it knocked out was over 50 km away!...Seriously, Nova Scotia Power is ridiculous. 12,000 homes out of power because of a single pole. The car, as it turns out, burst into flames and the driver ran off (stolen?). For once I didn't really care about being out of power at the time, but it was this morning that was stressing me out, so I couldn't sleep. The power eventually came back on at 4:30 am. And then I could sleep without worrying for a few hours.

You see, tickets for INXS went on sale at 9:00 sharp this morning, and I was purchasing mine online. If the power had been out, I wouldn't have been able to get them. As it turned out, even having power, it was hard enough. But, after completely selling out in nearly 20 minutes, I have two golden rafter seats. The story really is so much longer than this, but I thought you would appreciate the abbreviated version, rather than the actual long-winded one. I may not shut-up about this until May.


Now tonight, we are having a wind storm with high wind warnings and winds up to 90 km/hr. It is howling outside and the lights have been flickering...we'll see about this one.

    INXS should be alot of fun, the only concert I have tickets for at the moment is James Blunt.

    Goodluck with the weather, last year my power went out for 52 hours with temps never over 30F, no generater either. Sucked!

    Yay Cathy ... tickets to INXS. They're an Aussie band, and I haven't even seen them live yet. Do they sound just as good with JD (that's his name, I hope) as the new Michael Hutchense ... I haven't yet heard them (or maybe I have, and didn't recognise them). Hope you have a brilliant time. When's the concert ???
    Take care, Meow

    Cathy your getting our weather from yesterday..It was insane! 100 km winds along with the freezing rain. 100,000 without power. Don't venture out if u don't have you.

    Congrats on the INXS tickets.

    it's nice to hear you excited about something.

  1. Blogger Eric said:

    Yup, we got blown away yesterday. Windows blew out, traffic signals fell to the streets, and 2 people died when trees fell on their cars.

    Our power remained, however.

    Bet 'The Babe' slept right on through!

    Congrats on getting the Inxs tickets Cathy and hope the power stayed with you. The only concert I'm waiting for is Madonna's but she hasn't announced any dates yet and I hate to think how much the tickets will cost!!


  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Oh yeah! I will!!!
    (p.s. you need to e-mail me your address again; I've misplaced it....)

    Isn't that the best song!

    I heard they sold out in Vancouver in 5 minutes! Who cares if we have crappy seats!

    I haven't been to a concert in ummm can't remember...and now we might also get tickets to see the SkyDiggers...

    The concert is not until May!
    And I have been a fan of INXS since the very beginning, and so was THRILLED when their new lead singer was chosen (from my home province)Even though I am biased, he is a perfect fit for them.

    Isn't he wonderful!?
    I've e-mailed you....

    Definitely sad, but they have a good new lead with JD.

    I heard about your weather on the National last night and hoped that you were home safe and sound. We didn't get anything like you guys...

    I guess I don't get excited about much on my blog...:}

    Yikes! Half of North America was hit by this system...glad your power stayed on and you stayed safe.

    That he did. :)

    Welcome and thanks!
