The weather remains cool, although there has been no rain nor fierce wind since Tuesday's powerful storm. The storm did a good deal of damage in this area. It brought down trees and power poles and left some areas without power or telephone service for several hours. While I did not experience any loss of electric power, the telephone at my office was affected for several hours, and the DirecTV satellite signal was lost for about twenty minutes.

Paris Hilton was released from jail today for "medical reasons." She shall serve the 40-day balance of her sentence confined to her home and must wear an ankle bracelet. This is not hawt! It shall be interesting, however, to see whether Paris can successfully complete the 40-day home confinement without slipping out of her ankle bracelet and making the party scene. Of course, with the resources she has available to her, she could easily arrange for the party to come to her!
