Exactly at midnight the power went off in the whole neighborhood. Presumably it has been announced in the local newspaper. Who reads the newspaper anyway? It was gone for 2 hours. Played Civ2 on the portable (yay new batteries) with candles around. Oooh! Candlelight, me and Civ2... :p
Oh, and my alarm clock goes off the grid. I woke up an hour early.
