    Ugh! Got home from my 2nd job about 1/2 hour ago ... to find a blackout in the area. It is ssoo hot in this house I want to DIE. And, my computer is running on battery fumes now ... but I had to log on (thank goodness for Verizon Wireless Broadband!). lol...

    I hope the power comes back on soon or I will melt.

    Guess I shoulda stayed at work and had a beer...

      I would have stayed at work too if they served beer ...

      I am sorry you are melting... Hope the electricity comes back very soon.
      My sister is in Greer by the airport, wonder if they were affected.

        hehe ... the joys of my FI owning a bar! :-)

        I doubt your sister is. I'm downtown and everything was fine untl my street and past it ... so it must be something isolated. probably an accident that took down a portion of the grid. Still ... ugh...

        Are you from the area or did your sis move here? I've been here since 1999.

          I live in Ohio, came here for college. We are from Mexico City, but she went to school in SC (PC) and lives there now with her hubby. I was in Greenville in April for her wedding.

            Yikes, if the heat is as bad where you are s it was here today, I feel so bad for you. I would totally fill the bathtub with cool water and just sit in it!

                LOL ... My East Coast girls! Yes, you ladies know humidity in DC and NJ!! I'm dealing so far ... I just keep thinking that my FI is still in Iraq in 115+ heat, so I guess to him what I'm dealing with IS like having A/C. lol...

                  Yep, it was beautiful.
                  Will probably visit in Dec. I'll hit ya up.
                  Are you from that area?

                  I think Jessica is onto something - sitting in cold water... but of course you couldn't read the forum as well :)

                    zzaapp ... electrocuted from havingmy computer in my lap in the cold bath water. lol

                    I'm from the DC area but moved down here for work nack in '99 and LOVE it. My FI moved here from Jersey for college (Furman) and stayed ever since also. We LOVE Greenville ... and nw owning an oyster bar means we probably won't be leaving anytime soon.

                    Definitely look me up! Would love to meet up with some BDW here in what we like to call G-Vegas.
