I was on crutches from an injury in my backyard with 5-6 friends drinking beer and smoking alot of piff. Went to sleep then woke up at 4 am when power went back on. Maybe missed couple hours of tv.

At work, but when I got off went to my favorite bar and have drinks all by candlelight, it was a deja vue moment as I did the same thing during the 1977 blackout, and the 1965 blackout, do you see a pattern here? lol

At work. Then sent home. No interruptions of family time. Brought out all the candles and the family and I set up camp in the living room. Great memories!

I got home and killed the rest of the chilled vodka. It needed to die.
