My cats and myself are OK. We lost power about 8:40 last night (in the middle of my MMORPG group activity) and got it back about half an hour ago. I've been catching up on my usual activities and email since. A tree fell on the power lines. I met some ComEd people and they said a few hours. Then my neighbor said he spoke to some and they said "tomorrow if we're lucky". Well thank FSM I was right. When the power came on I went outside and gave him a Nelson-style "HA-HA!" because I was so happy. He took it in good humor since all of us were worried about flooding.
