Hail hell

As a follow=up to my last post, which was about the hail storm on Saturday, I should mention that after I entered the coffee shop I got a text message from the UW alert system, which I didn't even bother to read once I noticed where it was from. As soon as I got into work today and started looking through my work email I discovered what it was about. That enormous thunderclap I mentioned in my previous story was the result of a lightning bolt that apparently struck the University power substation, resulting in loss of power across campus. One of my co-workers had to come into the office, because he had to reboot our servers and restart the cooling unit. He was coordinating with other university personnel who had to deal with the consequences of power outages all over the place. So while Drunk Guy was celebrating life with a little hail dance on Queen Anne Avenue, responsible people were being responsible elsewhere. As usual, I was oblivious to the signals.
