Ike Twitter Log

Posted Oct 03 2008 11:31am

As power has been scarce when I’m not at work, most of my updates have come in the form of tweets. For no one in particular’s benefit except for mine I’m pasting a log of my tweets the last week here.

back to work. still no power. at least I have 48 hours of overtime on today’s paycheck. Who knew disasters equal cash money?   13 minutes ago  from BeTwittered

STILL no power…this 19th century lifestyle is getting old. Yes, I realize the irony of tweeting given the situation. about 13 hours ago from BeTwittered

STILL no power. Radio says maybe friday in my area. about 21 hours ago from TinyTwitter
