Tuesday night, I was working on typing up several blog posts while Jason was watching TV and Hannah was sleeping. I had been going in and out of the living room trying to watch the repeat of the new Sons of Anarchy episode and was back in the office when I heard an explosion. It wasn’t close, but it was close enough to rattle the windows. Immediately following the sound, all the electricity when off. And I mean all the electricity…as in the whole town.
I stumbled through the house and lit a few candles, then grabbed a flashlight and headed outside. Several of out other neighbors were out and were all pretty confused as to what had happened. We cold hear police cars and firetrucks going, and several of them when past, but no one would say what was going on. There wasn’t even anything on the police band. We joked about the possibility of the cause being the decommissioned satellite that was scheduled to fall out of orbit. But eventually we all gave up and went back inside.
The power was out for about an hour and a half, and came back on as suddenly as it went off. It’s now Thursday, and no one still knows what happened. The local paper says they are working on it…but that may take a month.
Anyway, we spent yesterday working on trying to get housework done since I’m going to be gone most of today. Hannah is spending the day at my parents while me, Trana, and some others get ready to go ghost hunting tonight. It’s going to be exciting…and the place we are going is very active, so we should get some great evidence.
I’m extremely behind on getting some reviews out, one of which I had typed up/p;osted but it disappeared on me, so I’m going to try to cram them in before I leave this afternoon, but I don’t think I’ll be able to get them up in time.
