Don't You Love It When The Power Goes Out?

Don't You Love It When The Power Goes Out?

So we needed some rain right? Sure, the grass looked brown and crappy with the small drought we've been having, but it seems like with the global warming induced storms lately, it's all or nothing.

Gone are the days of small, enjoyable rain storms that weren't equal to the sinking of the Titanic.  The storms we get now are huge, enormous, destructive ones that knock down trees, destroy houses and cars, and seem to make all of us extremely late for work.

This morning I woke up early to realize that our power was out and that other than a few things I could do on my phone, I had nothing to occupy my time since it was too early to go to the mall or anywhere else for that matter.  I don't read books (another great trait not instilled in me by my time in CPS), so when the electricity g0es out, my entertainment lowers to zip.

Maybe all these storms are mother nature's way of helping defeat the bill ComEd is trying to move through Springfield to up their rates and install a "Smart Grid", which is probably just another term for "higher rates and worse service".  I mean my electric bill went up $30 from last month alone...

But I ended up just making myself go back to bed, what do you do when the power goes out? Anything special lately with the few huge storms we've had?
