    My part of Crestwood North never lost power, which is a miracle. I’ve got friends in other parts of the metro that aren’t getting power back until tomorrow

    I have never lost power at my house for more than 30 minutes and that is exceedingly rare.

    Power only flickered for me in Chelsea. Flickered a bunch but never lost power for more than a second. Charter is down though internet and TV have been out since about 1am. Thank god for LTE.

    and I live on 280, (highland lakes) before Chelsea but it’s easier to reference Chelsea than reference an odd part of 280 :song:

    Saw a buddy voted at Valleydale and was in line for 2 and a half hours before he even made it to where he could see the entrance to the building.

    Tried to vote at McElwain at 7:15 and 11:05 and both times there was limited parking so I nope'd out. Got there at 2:40 and was back at the office around 3:30. Glad to know I saved myself ~30 minutes for extra TMB/Twitter

    I’ve never waited more than 3 people to vote at MB City Hall. Line was consistently all the way from City Hall to Crestline Bagel from 6:30 til 12:30.

    Took about 40 minutes

    Had to run several errands today and every time I drove by McElwain it was packed. I got there right around 7 and was out around 8:30. Fully expect to have the ‘rona now based on how packed and unventilated it felt.

    Hearing that Trussville is 3+ hour wait. BFF just got a text that, after 3 hours in line, her colleague can now see the building.
