So I was getting ready for the party tonight when a sudden storm swept up on us. Sudden storms aren't uncommon around here, so I didn't pay too much attention. But then....whooosh...no power.
"What the hell?"
Then click click, power.
"Whew...I was ab..."
Whoooosh. No power.
And it stayed off. The house filled with the sounds of beeping as various battery backups tried to work, but they're all old, so things were beeping and wheezing and you would have thought I was in ICU or something.
So I waited. And waited. Annnnnnnd waited. Nothing. Thunder, lightning, all that stuff that scares me was going on. Then on the police scanner we heard it. "Yeah, some trees fell on the power lines. Cut the power out all over this area."
Damn damn damn!!
So I ended up becoming a total whiny nightmare for hours and ended up missing all of the disco party except for the last 10 minutes. Sighs. I felt so bad. I felt even worse that people worried about me. I had sent Levi a text message, but I really should have just called him. I fail.
But we WILL reschedule it! I have a disco outfit and I have almost 3 hours worth of disco music. We are GOING to reschedule this sucker!
Huge thanks to Cen for doing such a great job and to Meara for finding a disco station and to Levi and Dyami for helping out with the welcoming. :) If there had been any way at all I could have been there, I would have. You know it would take some kind of destruction for me to miss these parties. :)
