Ice Storm Power Outage

I survived....almost 7 hours without power. It got really cold. I was worried I'd have to sleep without heat....but I did find my old sleeping bag.

Unfortunately, I had trouble after power came back.

My Windows desktop lost its mind....guess I need a new CMOS battery for it.

My Linux server came up...but then went away. Just like its predecessor....extended power outage....the fans failed in it and it toasted itself. Hopefully it had some kind of safety shutoff, and replacing the CPU fan will get it going again. Though I don't know where I'm gonna score one....hopefully the computer store at work has one. Otherwise, I guess I'll put Amazon Prime to the test.

Not sure where things stand on improving my emergency preparedness or UPS replacement or other things....

Suppose I should figure out what I'm having for supper, just in case I lose power again....

Meanwhile Cox is still out >:-(

K-State Closed Today Due to Ice Storm

MANHATTAN - Kansas State University's Manhattan and Salina campuses are closed today due to inclement weather and downed tree limbs on campus. Normal schedules will resume Wednesday morning.

Provost Duane Nellis, in consultation with Faculty Senate leaders, has arranged for finals scheduled during the day Tuesday to move to Saturday; and for finals scheduled Tuesday night to move to Friday night. The residence halls will remain open an extra day to allow for the Saturday finals.

"President Jon Wefald and I discussed the weather conditions, with the storm predicted to continue through today," said Tom Rawson, vice president for administration and finance. "We are concerned that tree damage and falling tree limbs could be hazardous for people walking on campus."

The safety of our students and employees is paramount, Rawson said.

Nellis said, "I am asking faculty to be as flexible as possible in making reasonable accommodation for students with Tuesday finals who would suffer hardship if they are required to change transportation plans in order to take their final."

Gary Leitnaker, assistant vice president for human resources, said employees who are involved with housing, feeding and the safety of students and campus buildings should report to work if possible. All other employees may stay home.

The only other stuff I see this morning so far...is that most of the FM stations are noise, the bad UPS situation failed again during the night. The tape backup that was in progress stopped and COX is out. There was an interruption to DSL during the night, but its working now....

Cranking the heat and hanging out online....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
