Blackout

leave a comment »

Well, I was going to write about our trip to DC for fourth of July, but when I got home there turned out to be a power outage in the whole block. I’m told that it’s a controlled blackout, which the city apparently institutes during the summer (the grid can’t handle all the ACs? Or what?). I’d left my computer on to transfer some things, and it’s running on battery now, so it must have started less than two hours ago. Anyway, I’ll save the fourth of July post for tomorrow and shut down for now. Read about freight trains in America, while there’s still light to do so.
