That was an…ordeal…
First off, they told us they were turning the power off at 8:30am. It turned off at 9:45am. Okay. That’s no big deal.
And they were done by 2:30pm instead of the 5pm they told us. Also, okay. No big deal.
What was an ordeal was the cable and internet. My theory is the cable company forgot to turn them back on until about 4pm. Why was this an ordeal?
Well, my father isn’t very calm or impatient when things don’t work when they’re supposed to…wonder where I got THAT from?! Anyways, had to listen to him do that thing men do where they breathe loudly and huff and puff trying to pretend like they know what they’re doing instead of believing not only those around them, but one of those websites (looking at from our phones) that say there’s a blackout in the area.
Bottom line. The actual power outage situation was simple and easy. It was dealing with my parents……..who weren’t even home for all of it.
ANYBUT, I got a lot of reading done. Got halfway through Stephen King’s End of Watch which I’ve been meaning to read for…..four years?
