We had a citywide blackout today. It only lasted an hour, and I found it to be more interesting than anything else. I was at the gym at the time and we had to evacuate. A bunch of us in the change room had to get dressed by the light of my iPod Touch. That thing is so handy! I went home straight away, and was surprised by how civilized it was while driving through dead streetlights. No fuss, everyone treated them like 4-way stops; not like some experiences I’ve had back home… Some of the locals have told me that blackouts are kind of common around here. I don’t mind, I have lots of blankets to keep me warm. But, note to self, buy a better flashlight! I have a flashlight/nightlight that is supposed to automatically turn on during a power failure. No such luck… On the knitting front, I am frantically trying to finish a couple projects before I fly home for Christmas. I’ll show them off after the holidays. Nothing on the needles for myself right now!
