Boom boom boom, out go the lights.
Well not really boom boom boom, just a lot of wind, some rain and then, poof. My block and a couple of blocks over are the only ones in the hood that are out. Only 82 affected by the outage on these few blocks, 1600 in the county. Not many out, but we're not exactly a priority probably. Sometimes all of this data we get from the Internet actually comes in handy when used right.
Let's hear it for smart phones, carry out food, and a couple of nice battery powered fluorescent lamps.
The only downside is trash day is tomorrow and I finally got motivated a couple of weeks back and started sorting out massive amounts of stuff in the basement to trash, with extreme prejudice. Stuff I've moved for years and never even opened the boxes. LOL. Trash day is tomorrow. I got about half done of my goal for the day of moving stuff out to curb. Timing is everything. Basements at night without lights are kind of dark. Will have to finish by candlelight. Or fluorescent light.
Going to pick up some oriental and entertain myself on a. 3.5" screen. Beats no screen.
