Ice Storm 2008

So I'm sitting here at a friends house, leeching off of their internet connection. We're three days into our power outage at CDX HQ. We had an ice storm Thursday night that knocked out power to a good portion of New England. Over 300,000 homes in Massachusetts were without power. It's Sunday now, and they are now telling us that we may not have power back until Tuesday.

We've been keeping warm, we still have power, but we have no heat. We have a fireplace that has been keeping us warm, and we should have enough wood to last us the duration.

It's amazing how much we rely on technology. I went into laptop withdrawl while at the house, so we ended up folding a lot of laundry. Our cel phones worked, but thats about it. We went scrounging at local stores for batteries and candles...

We were really unprepared. Looking forward we may invest in a generator to keep the heat and lights on. Where we are in town is not exactly on the list of priority places to restore power.

Please bear with us if the site goes down, or news and content isnt updated much this week.. who knows when I will be able to get on-line again. I know shogundan and atom are also affected by this storm, and they too are without power.

I'm sorry to hear this. Sometimes I feel we rely too much on technology.

As for Malta the weather is sunny in the morning and quite cold at night. No storms here. Only mild weather.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2009 to all CDX staff.

2009 marks the release of the Beagle 1/10 Mospeada and Blocker Gundan IV Machine Blaster on DVD and the Odysseus spacheship from Ulysses 31 by High Dream and .........
