Lights out

The other day, the utility company had a "scheduled outage." We didn't get the memo. 9AM-4PM, they told me, when I finally called at 11. Even though I am a former UCSC slug, and as such, am supposed to be (and feel like I am) in touch with nature and aware of creature comforts, I had an alarming amount of "duh" moments. I thought to myself, "I can't use the computer, so I'll just go listen to the radio..."; "Why is the light out in the refrigerator?" I came very close to trying to use the microwave. And I got lucky that Roque was able to help me get the car out of the garage, sans (and in spite of) the garage door opener, in time for Gavin's doctor's appointment.
