Lights out

Power failures are a pain in the butt. We had one this morning, about an hour ago. It only lasted about a minute, but all my computers went down, and I had to reset all my clocks.

We take reliable power for granted, and PGE (Portland General Electric) does a really good job overall. So it's really a surprise when it really does happen, kind of like being blindsided by a sucker punch.

1 It must have been pretty localized.  My stuff was still on over by Elmonica.

2 Yeah, PGE does a great job, I can only recall one outage since I moved here 8 years ago.  PG&E down in Los Angeles was close, but not quite that good, there were more "freak accidents" like transformers blowing in a storm or squirrels frying themselves on a line and taking it out.
