    Blackouts?

    Anyone else been hit with a blackout anytime during this heatwave throughout the US? This is the 2nd night in a row the power has gone out, and it's too humid to be outside. My parents are thinking about going to a motel for the night.


    What do you do to keep yourself from boredom? Any ideas/suggestions would be nice.

    I live in the middle of nowhere, with a dual grid line connection. If one grid goes out, power is redirected through the other grid. I only lose power when all lines are down.

    The only occasions when my power goes out is in strong storms.
    With a population density of 3/sq mile, overuse isn't going to do it.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    Nope, no power outage here.

    As for your 2nd question, I usually browse forums or Youtube.

    See, but with the power off my router and modem also goes off. Thus no WiFi, unless you're using a phone.

    Well if the power goes out for a long ass time, I take a nap.
    I live in the middle of nowhere with no one around.

    My mom used to baby sit so all/most of the books in my house are children's books.
