Storm Pep

Like many DC residents, we received the robo-call from Pepco warning us of extended power outages this weekend. While I admire their proactive approach, it is somewhat amusing how they couched the message as a pep-talk for preparing for the storm.  With low expectations set, perhaps they will have a better response time and customer response than they did for winter storms, during which I hear they had notoriously bad service.

You can find us camped out on the couch this weekend, with a stack of books and magazines, and a dog who woke up with cabin fever.  She might not be able to forecast the earthquake – unlike the animals at the zoo, she slept through the earthquake on Tuesday and the aftershocks throughout the week – but she seems rather excited about the impending storm. Like Pepco, she is part of the pep rally for the storm.
