I was just telling my readers on my other blog that we just had a blackout here in my area of Toronto. Three hours of total darkness!
Our power flashed on and off at about 11:30 last night and then went out for good. My laptop was still on and for a minute or two I though I could still use it (I was writing a post) but then I realized that the Linksys router was out due to the power outage. So much for that idea.
I tried to go to sleep honest.
I waited for the power to come back on for a while, but when there was no sign of it returning I got ready for bed. Of course I never go to bed that early so I couldn’t sleep. I read a novel for a while using my husbands book light. Man that was handy. A bit awkward, but handy … but I think I’d only just fallen asleep when the furnace turned on and woke me up.
Someone must have hit a transformer or something. We haven’t had a power outage last that long for quite a while.
Once I got up and turned the computer on again (when the power returned at 2:30 am) I tried to go to local news sites to see if there was any news as to what caused the power failure, but I didn’t find anything. I did learn of a ground beef recall though … luckily we didn’t buy meat in any of the listed stores.
