The power went out about halfway home from work. The radio station went to static and as I fussed about with the radio it slowly dawned on me that all the stop lights
were out too. Much wider area than normal. Wasn't until I arrived home and turned on the battery
powered short wave radio that I discovered how wide the outage was.
What hoot! Everyone standing at the end of their driveway talking.
I turned on the gas at the trailer and lit the reefer pilot. I didn't move anything to it until the next morning as the mostly empty freezer had thawed what was in there.
Slept in the trailer the rest of the weekend as the trailer, while hotter than the house during the day, cooled off faster at night. Treated myself to a big breakfast Friday morning. Too many steaks for my diet, but, oh well. Enough water on board (about half a tank) to keep me in morning coffee. Offered my stove to the neighbor but he was doing well cooking on his gas grill.
Dragged the telescope out of the garage expecting really dark skies but there was a full moon and it almost seemed like daylight.
Power back on Friday night, but was having fun sleeping in the trailer so decided why change a good thing?
