(Strip Number 1409, Original Publication Date, 27 January 1988)
Panel 1: We head back to Connie's place to find Elly being relieved that Greg and John have checked into a hotel for the night.
Panel 2: Elly's slow speed panicking continues as she freaks a very little bit out and wonders how long the terrible storm of being caught flat-footed and having stranded kids and closed streets will last.
Panel 3: Connie tries to cheer her up by saying that at least the power hasn't gone off yet.
Panel 4: Before she can finish that sentence, the hydro craps out on them.
Summary: This is turning into a 'What not to do' thing, isn't it? Elly shouldn't have tarried so long at Connie's whining about the storm but taken steps to make the clean-up easier.
