I came home from a fun evening of loud music and TA movie promo just a bit ago. On the way through the parking lot, I noticed that the only lights seemed to be on the other side of the building, but didn’t give it much thought. Until I tried to flip on a light switch, and nothing happened. “Huh,” I thought, “Did we burn out another lightbulb?” Nope. Half of the apartment building has electricity. Half doesn’t. Guess which side I’m on?
I called PGE, which confirmed that I’m one of 4000 lucky customers spending the night in the dark. I wasn’t going to try to get online, but the laptop battery is charged still, and for once there’s open wifi somewhere nearby. So I logged on just to post this. Obsessed with connectivity? Hmm.
