Downtime and vacation planning

There were some very heavy storms that ran through our area over the weekend. Unfortunately, the high winds and load of rain knocked out power to our house for awhile. That meant our server was offline for a few days. I'm sure there are people that would be OK with this. After all, it's not like I can control the weather. However, I hate it when the site isn't working. But we're back online so things can get back to normal. I've been helping my mother try to find someplace nice for my family to go for vacation. There's 7 of us total, meaning it's quite a chore to find somewhere that fits everyone's wants. One of the current ideas is to rent a houseboat on a lake for a few days. I'm not a big fan of water, but I suppose I can put up with it for a few days to make everyone else happy. I'm going to need to figure out how to lose weight fast though. I don't want to spend all week in a bathing suit looking like a whale!
