Power went out in my neighborhood today. My block was back on before I got home so other than immediately plugging in my tablet to charge up, no impact on me. Much of the area is still out though. I went to a friend's for dinner. Driving home, both stop lights at the neighborhood entrance out, all the houses and street lights dark, felt very surreal. Even where the houses have light, the street lights are dark, which seems strange. Makes me want to drink hot chocolate and contemplate apocalyptic fic.
