Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 26 January 2017

As the inclement weather brings out the depressed loon in Elly, Connie tempts fate by saying that at least the electrical grid has yet to collapse only to have a snow-laden tree limb make her out to be a fool.

(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.
