Power outages are surreal.

We just got power back in the complex after about six hours. At first, some hall lights were on, but they gave out after a few hours on battery. All the radio stations are in “Sunday mode”–mostly recorded and no news. Finally, I trudged into work to log in and see if there was news online. Nothing. But it was good to go somewhere I could turn on a light switch. Something about a lack of electric seems apocalyptic. Is it the end of the world? Did the [insert current nemesis] drop the Big One?

Nope, just a squirrel in the transformer.
