One of my favorite things about losing power is that my fire alarms - cleverly wired into the household power supply (what kind of idiot designer thinks that's a good idea?) - beep for minutes after the power outage. The power briefly came back on at about midnight, just long enough to recharge the batteries on the fire alarms, then shut down again, making the beeping resume. Ah, joy. I was trying to sleep, what with not going out due to the hazardous condition of the roads, so this was the best of all worlds. Yay!
Oh, and did I mention that I was right in the middle of the fine film, "They Came From Beyond Space," based on Joseph Millard's book, The Gods Hate Kansas? Coincidence? I THINK NOT!
Did you lose power last night?
If your power went out, for how many hours did it remain off?
Finally, if it went out, what temperature did your place reach before power was restored?
