There were tons of debris on the road and I had to take numerous detours. On Saturday, I assumed work was cancelled, but I couldn't call or check emails because the whole damn network was down. The day was ridiculously hot, thankfully my sister never lost power so I spent a couple nights there. Driving around without any stoplights at major intersections is hazardous to your health.
|Seriously, douche, if you didn't learn what to do |
from the cars that went before you, your license should be revoked.
Two winters ago I dealt with the power going out during a blizzard. It sucked because I was stuck in the house because the roads weren't plowed. But one redeeming thing about power outages in the winter is that you can add more layers, you can only take off so much in a summer power outage. The heat just saps your energy, in the cold you just want to hibernate.
As of right now, I still don't know if my branch has power back yet. If not, I'll have to call around to find a branch willing to take in this branch-less refugee.
