Taking the power back

California was an interesting place this weekend; it just wasn't very well illuminated. Storms and gusts of wind over 50 mph knocked over power lines up and down the entire West coast. My parents' house in Los Gatos was without power from Friday morning until early Saturday morning, and the internet stayed down longer than that. No power and the inability to go outside in the bad weather made the day a bust in general, but I gathered some friends together and we played Scrabble by candlelight.

Sunday, with the power back on, I went to church with my parents, and even did some fundraising at coffee hour. I'm happy to say that we've now raised $200 in just the first week of the new year, on our way to our $1,000 goal for the month of January. Remember to contribute by clicking on "Join the Campaign" and the Donate button. A contribution of $25 or even less will be a step forward, allowing us to spread the word about the dangerous military-industrial complex.
