Power Outage

Last night I sat down prepared to work late into the night (as I usually do) and then POP! The power went out.
This happens from time to time and I figured the power would come back up in a few minutes.

Nothing.

Then I realized, "Oh yeah, our local electric company was going to update the power grid"

I looked outside the window and saw some houses well lit a few blocks from ours. FANTASTIC.

An hour later I was stealing someone's WiFi signal on my laptop planning my trip to New York.
About an hour and a half later my laptop battery was wearing down and I realized...I'm not gonna get a chance to work tonight. So I went to bed.

Next morning the power is still out! Almost 7 hours later we still had no electricity!

Will this be on the national news?! Will people wonder if we're OK?! Should we notify loved ones?!?
My son wakes up. "ELMO! MILK!" he demands... That's his code for a nice bottle of milk and watch an episde of Sesame Street.

Uh..."No Elmo and hopefully milk is still drinkable." I say as Leah and I are holding a flashlight.

"WAAAAA!!!!" the boy screams in disapproval translating to, "Well you better get this situation straightened out OLD MAN!"


Panic begins to set in. "SOMEONE GET THIS BOY A FRICKIN' COLD BOTTLE OF MILK!!!!"

Leah breaks out a slightly cooled milk bottle.

Crisis averted.

"ELMO!" the boy demands!

I break out the laser pointer and drive the kitten nuts running around the house. This pleases the boy who seems unaffected by the power outage. A bowl of Cheerios and a diaper change later it's time to take the boy to daycare.

Crisis averted.

I can't even remember the last time I was in a power outage for that long. It makes one realize their dependence on their electronic devices when they're sitting in the dark.

Well, time to catch up on a nights work lost. Have a great day everyone.
