At the risk of being repetitive, it's great to be home, your own bed, your own shower and coffee from your own pot. Well 2 out of 3 ain't bad (to quote another song). When we woke up this morning there was silence, not a sound. NK got up and said "that's weird". It seems the ceiling fan was still. Of course she flipped the switch a few times to make sure it was not going to come back on. It was then she determined that we had no power. I checked the circuit breaker just to make sure before I called the power companies automated power outage reporting system. You just can't talk to a person at all these days!

After punching all of the buttons on my touch tone phone I was told that CB had city wide outages with anticipated restoration around 9AM. We got our power back about 5 minutes later, just after I lit the candle in the bathroom (I heard this whrrrrrrrrr and then the refrigerator kicked in so I knew we were in business).

I wonder how many people were late for work because they couldn't get their garage door open (did not think to pull the rope to disconnect the latch)?

The power was out in my wee town the other night, because a Racoon got into the main breaker box that supplies almost the whole town. He got fried, and it took a good 6 hours to fix the damage. . .

Um, if that had happened to me and if that HAD occured to me, that thing with the garage door opener, I would've pretended it did NOT, so I could sleep in a few more minutes.
But that's just me. :)
