No lights for us

You probably heard that we at the central office lost power yesterday. Apparently it was half the office park and a bit down the road too. Now don’t worry about us - the generators turned on, illuminating staircases and bathrooms and allowing the server equipment to beep incessantly. And since it happened around lunch time, there was still plenty of natural light, especially near Al’s cubical. So we all huddled around, and I got caught up on my newspaper–scanning for mentions of you all (reminder – send me your news items!)

Eventually Jim told us we could go home.

So that was our afternoon. Do you have a plan for when the power goes out? If you need extra help, the CDC has created a handy web page, “What You Need to Know When the Power Goes Out Unexpectedly.” Read it now, and be better prepared for your next outage.
