Power out all over the place and it's hot -- do you have power?

Apparently there are tons of power outages. I must have been in some kind of vortex, because I was at the Red Derby last night and didn't even notice the storm! Or maybe I had too many canned beers. But in any case, the radio said 1 million people are without power, and it seems that Pepco's site is down.

So how about you? Do you have power? (I am assuming you can read this on your cell phone, if you don't.) Let us know in the comments where you have it and where you don't!

And unfortunately it's also going to be extremely hot today. Here's the Capital Weather Gang's guide for how to stay cool in the heat (scroll down a bit for dos and don'ts.) You could also visit a local establishment that has power and chill out there to keep cool -- maybe a coffee shop, restaurant, or bar. Why not try a new spot? Coffy's Crepes, or The Pinch, or El Chucho's or Mama Chuy or Salt and Pepper Grill! (Some of which aren't open for lunch, but still.) Or an old fave, like Wonderland, Looking Glass, Sticky Fingers or Room 11. There's also the pool, but I bet it will be packed.

What are you doing to beat the heat?

Power is out in Bloomingdale at 1st and Florida NW. Really hope PEPCO comes to the rescue.
