I have not had any coffee today.  I have instead drunk a pot of tea.  =
Why would I do this?  Well, yesterday a short but powerful storm blew =
through the area and among other things, knocked out the power.  I am =
currently running a backup generator, but I cannot spare the power to =
run my espresso machine or even my TV.  My press pot has a broken =
plunger and I haven't used it in awhile.  I could make cowboy coffee or =
use the one cup pourover, but haven't yet.  Actually the tea tastes =
pretty good for something different.  There was a lot of damage in the =
area - many uprooted trees and some people lost some siding, but we were =
pretty lucky.  Out patio table was damaged and my TEC Radiant Wave grill =
was lifted by the wind a flipped over, breaking the Infra Red filter =
plate.  This grill weighs about 150 lb. and I can't figure out how the =
wind got under it to lift it. Fortunately, I don't think that the burner =
was cracked.    miKe is probably the only one who knows what I am =
talking about as he has the same grill.  BTW - That glass plate (about 1 =
sq-ft) costs $109 + $16 shipping to replace, so try not to break it.  It =
is a rather unique piece of glass, however.  In operation, it reaches =
temperatures over 1000 degrees and has cold juices and sometimes rain =
fall on it when that hot.  That does not faze it.  
Anyway, I have to go buy more gas for my generator, so while I am in =
town, I think that I will stop at one of the coffee shops.  This is a =
small town, but actually has a couple of independent shops that are =
pretty good as well as the mermaid and the venison.

Sorry about the damage, Mike...that was quite a storm.  Shall I bring over
an emergency coffee ration?
 
and Lynne, this IS lake country, after all, and freshwater mermaids abound.
Actually pretty tasty with a just a spritz of lemon and a dash of cayenne...
 
better leave it at that...

  The mermaid is the symbol for Starbucks.  For the venison, I was =
referencing Caribou Coffee.  
  The power is still out.

We lost our power for about an hour yesterday.  But this morning I was late and found myself without coffee.  I had to drink the coffee at work with creamer.  It must be the effect of the storm.

Sorry you still don't have power.
Glad you aren't adding mermaid & venison to your brew.

What do you mean "I can't SPARE the power to run my espresso machine...?"
Why do you have a backup generator? :)
