Many of the neighbor children were appalled. No TV. Nobody's mother would let them swim: the filter wasn't working at the pool. Not enough light to skateboard by. At least all us grannies had light-stick bracelet and necklace doodads and we all handed them around freely (a visible child is an unsquished child...) I did wish I had a decent battery or propane lantern. I bet REI has some on end-of-summer sale.
I turned off the A/C, opened the patio door and bedroom window, and was glad the weather had moderated a bit. My power came on briefly a bit after 1 am - that was just a teaser - and then came on and stayed on about 2:30. I got the various clocks reset and went back to sleep just in time for the alarm clock to alarm me. Ah, well, everyone else at work looks a bit ragged, too. We will all be drinking a few extra cups of coffee. It's a Navy base. Nobody will notice.
