Fortunately, I was out of my shower (just) when the power went out this morning. I suppose it says something terribly shallow about me that I know pieces of my wardrobe well enough to find them by feel in the dark, but with no Jeeves of my own I have to do the best I can.
The power was out in a several-block radius, including at least one major traffic light, so I presume that VA Power knows about the situation and is working to correct it. At least I hope so ... I would prefer not to come home tonight to a 99-degree apartment and see various once-frozen liquids oozing out of the refrigerator.
It's purely luck that we were awake this morning when it went; we got up early so I could get in early because my job is still being a rat-bastard. Otherwise, it's entirely possible I could have woken up at 9:00, wondering why I was so warm and not realizing that I was already an hour late.
*sigh* If only...
