No damage to the house, the trash can was still in the same spot we left it.

Still unemployed, as most of the advertised positions are for factory engineers and accountants and paralegals.

Still writing, but most of it is for magazines in Second Life, and paid in L$, instead of USD and the current exchange rate is about L$270 = $1.

The RP outlines are all right, except when they get tangled with others. There is still the annoyance of the occasional bigot, who does not see himself as such, and gets indignant when someone points it out to him. Besides, I do not need the extra crap, the office in-world is getting busy enough without taking him to court over it.

Still working as a volunteer for Relay for Life of Second Life. My page is http://main.acsevents.org/goto/Annechen.Lowey even if the stupid site is not behaving today to let me in.

THE RECORD TEMPERATURE FOR NASHVILLE FOR THIS DATE IS 100 DEGREES SET IN 1983. WE WILL LIKELY BREAK THIS RECORD WITH AN EXPECTED HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 104 DEGREES FOR NASHVILLE THIS AFTERNOON. THE RECORD TEMPERATURE OF 95 DEGREES IN 1983 FOR CROSSVILLE IS ALSO LIKELY TO BE BROKEN.

37 Die In South, Midwest Heat Wave

The excerpt details the blurb what caught my attention on the radio:

The Tennessee Valley Authority, the nation's largest public utility, shut down one of three units at the Browns Ferry nuclear plant in Athens, Ala., because water drawn from the Tennessee River was exceeding a 90-degree average over 24 hours.

"We don't believe we've ever shut down a nuclear unit because of river temperature," said John Moulton, spokesman for the Knoxville, Tenn.-based utility.

The shutdown posed no safety threat, officials said. The TVA will compensate for the loss of power by buying power elsewhere, Moulton said.
