Power Outage

Our power was out for over 7 hours this morning - from roughly 3 a.m. to 10ish. Apparently an SUV hit a power pole over on Nutley Street, which is the major road connecting Fairfax and Vienna.

I keep a flashlight on my nightstand, but had not checked the batteries in a while. They weren’t dead, but the light was dim. It was enough for me to see my way to the living room to get my headlamp, which was plenty bright enough.

I know that I own at least three other flashlights and another headlamp, but I have no idea where any of those are. I also should really put all of the spare batteries in one place. I doubt I have any D batteries at all (which is what the bedroom flashlight takes) but I think I saw some AAA batteries (spares for the headlamp) recently.

This sounds like a useful organizing ptoject.

Anyway, the power came back on, but my FIOS is still down. I can tether my computer to my phone if need be, but I will try calling in the morning. My guess is that Verizon also doesn’t check their batteries. This entry was originally posted at https://fauxklore.dreamwidth.org/483611.html. Please comment there using OpenID.
