Our power finally came back on. Yeah!
At around 11:30 pm last night, as Chris and I were watching TV, our power went out for a second, came back on again for a few seconds then we were pitched into total darkness.
We took a look outside and several streets around us were affected by the power outage too. The power finally came back on at 2:30 am after being off for 3 hours. Not fun when you’re in the middle of a blog post!
Good thing we have a lot of candles in the house. We quickly gathered candles from various parts of the house and lit them up in safe areas. Actually we put the dog in her crate first as I’m sure she would have knocked a candle over if she’d been out.
I did try to go to bed after waiting for the power to come back on for about 45 minutes. Chris has one of those book reading lights so I read a novel in bed for a while, hoping to get sleepy. I think I was just finally falling asleep when the furnace came on and startled me. That’s how I knew the power was back on.
Good thing I woke up though as I’d tried to turn out the lamps on the main floor, but I wasn’t successful as there were lights blazing in the living room when I checked.
Now I’m up and I’m hoping to get back to bed soon.
