Power out. Like, lots of power out for some time. I know I woke… - Melodramatic, corsetted mistress of the obscure

Power out. Like, lots of power out for some time. I know I woke around 2 to realize (slowly...) that the power was out.

And I called it in at 7:30, only to be told it was estimated to be fixed by 7. LOL

It looked like a goodly swath of my area of Lawrence without power and I had to detour off 9th to get out of town, because the power trucks took up the whole street at about the Burrito King.

Really, I expected the power back faster, or I would have been more worried about waking on time (I didn't. I was 90 minutes late).

And then I realized I had been relying on my internet access to 'call' into work. Oops.

My cellphone's signal in my apartment is iffy at the best of times. But, it DID have one number for me to call, so I used that number on my landline (which I thankfully had one corded phone for).

Ditto on the 9th Street detour. That was a very unpleasant surprise, and I work a lot closer to home than you. Our power wasn't out, though, and I didn't even know there was a problem until seeing all the KPL trucks on 9th - and the guys setting out temporary stop signs under the stoplight at 9th & Maine was a sign they were expecting it to be a while.....

One of my clocks suggested the power didn't come back until about 9 am.
