Turns out, however, it was out in many many places all over the city. Including the gym/pool. When I got up, the outage map said that the pool would not be restored until 9 am. So no swimming. Over the course of the next hour, I got fine with that. Weekend swimming is not my favorite anyway. I can just stay inside here with no reason to even get dressed.
And then I checked the outage map just now (7 am) and, it appears the power is back on at the pool. So I had a little debate and decided to go with Plan A. I'm going to stay here and do laundry and watch TV and make little stuff and crochet and read more of the new book I started last night, which so far, is pretty darned engaging.

While my brother is here, swimming will be a day to day adventure. Then, after he goes, I can get back into the rhythm. Back into the swim swing.
