No progress on the game engine tonight—not even a name.

I went out to a coffee shop to read and see if they sold their own beans (I just got a Chemex and a coffee grinder), and while I was reading, a short but massive thunderstorm blew through. The whole shop was flashing with lightning, rain flying sideways with the wind, and the bed of a pickup truck flew out of the truck and hit the coffee shop window. The storm only really lasted for maybe ten minutes, but I later drove back to my apartment in the rain to find that all the street lights and stoplights were out. It was so dark and rainy on my way back, I couldn’t even tell if I was on my side of the road.

Suffice to say, it’s very hard to program with no electricity, so I ended up working on my #shortstory with my manual typewriter, a flashlight, and a candle until the lights finally came back on. What a night.

Geez. Glad you weren’t hit by the truck.

Wow, that’s crazy! Glad you made it home safe. Also quite the romantic image using your manual typewriter by candlelight 😏

Luckily I didn’t have too far to drive, though driving with no lights (aside from headlights) was actually kind of fun in a hectic sort of way. The candle seemed like a good idea until I realized that one candle next to the typewriter did almost nothing to illuminate the page—hence the flashlight.
