Absence of Power, Moment of Ignorance
Well, something is going on. The power is out right now. We here in the Town are running on an emergency generator, but we are getting calls. From everywhere. The power is apparently out all across southern Ontario. Everywhere. We don't know why or how long, but it's become pretty apparent that something's happened. Either someone at Hydro One hit the wrong button (metaphorically speaking) or it's ... something else. Don't know what and don't even want to start speculating. But it's scary, actually. And I'm just blogging this in my moment of ignorance, just because.
... Just heard that the power's out all the way to the Carolinas. Don't know if it's true. I am officially scared, but I keep answering calls.
If nothing else, I am going to have to write a story about a switchboard at the end of the world.
