now mind you i'm not complaining, but doesn't it just figure that after waiting out the two 90+ degree days and postponing a trip to the library until today, there was a power outage affecting much of downtown's public facilities (and also wayne state and the art museum). (i didn't contribute -- i'd left my ac off, as usual.) but it wasn't until after navigating a series of ad hoc four-way stops that i learned the library was closed. ah, detroit. the sixty-one degree windy weather was enlivening and even a bit chilly after the heat. of course the heat were doused again tonight, but that's how the whistle blows.
