But then the power went out, and in the middle of me cooking myself up a little potatoes, eggs and buttered broccoli to boot! So, instead, I wolfed down my (thankfully finished) boiled eggs, half-cooked potatoes, and very raw broccoli, put on my rain jacket, and headed outside to see what there was to see.
What there was to see was a lot of grey.
In any case, I puttered about in the rain for a bit, then meandered back to the little town house I’ve been subletting across from the airport, to see if I couldn’t get a little more studying done and -- behold! The power is back on!
