12 of 12

 So I'm doing my 136th 12 of 12.

Normally it is 12 pictures taken on the 12th of the month. Since I only post once per day, you get my images the following day. All pictures taken with my iPhone. Click images to enlarge, if you choose.

Created by Chad Darnell and picked up from, what I can tell, any number of random bloggers who then link back to him and vice versa. Chad is no longer doing this, nor is successor coordinating the linking of other 12 of 12'ers anymore. Erik is back and I think he's picking up 12 of 12 again. 

05:29.  Still no electricity.  
Dark Sky said it wouldn't rain for another hour. It poured before we got to the end of the street. 

The electric company (sh. it.  shit!) said our power would be back on by 22:00.............tomorrow!

06:26.  Starbucks b'fast. 
Couldn't eat at home, so I had a sammich there and took it to the office. 

06:34.  The office. 
Not as funny as the show. 

06:37.  The sammich. 
Just as funny as the show. 

09:12.  Wiring. 
We are doing a major system conversion over the next 2-3 years (!!). 
The team that is coming in to do it needs everything rewired. 

10:18.  Yes. Yes they do.  ......but........

11:37.  Trying to get home. 
710 and I took opposite half-days to work from home due to yesterday's storm. Tons of streets still blocked. Non-working traffic signals too - and a few where the signals are just gone....taken out by the falling trees. 

13:17.  Screen shot of my Zoom meeting. 
Working with no electricity and no internet is REALLY difficult. 

14:02.  Sneak peak at our back yard project. 
It had hit the 90s. Heat index was climbing. No breeze and no a/c.  Miserable. 

16:27.  With my favourite girl. 
Even with the heat, I'll let a furry kitty curl up next to me. 

17:25.  Adventure #1:  the vet. 
Nothing wrong. Just his annual stuff. 

19:35.  Adventure #2. 
The house is too hot to stay comfortably - and I needed some internet to do some work. And my 12 of 12
Shep seems very comfortable at Hyatt Place

And there you have it.  Have a great Friday the 13th.
