Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
Sitting here nice n mellow, contemplating the next episode of Ye Olde Bloggage and >whomp<
Total power loss
Lame. Happens occasionally.
Went to the TECO (Tampa Bay Electric Company) web to report it and whoa nelly!
Now, I -know- for certain that the 144 affected isn’t just that
They -stop- taking and poasting # when its a HUGE outtage
Leastways that’s what I was told when I was doing security as an Anti-Terrorism Occifer for them.
And dis here poast?
Tied into and tiered my cellie as a hotspot to one of my Lappies.
Can’t game but can write and do ‘other’ stuff.
Man, I forgot just how quiet it can get ’round here without ‘modren’ stuff like power and whatnot. I went outside to see initially if I had done fucked up and NOT paid the bill (I was sure I did but still…) and the neighbors and all, well we all checked in and yepper, no juice.
And the neighborhood itself? Really quiet. No central AC running -anywhere- makes it mighty quiet here now.
The odd thing is that I got an email from Spectrum saying that the internet/cable has an outage too.
First time that’s ever happened. Now, if the cell goes out? THEN we might be seeing something else? Hard to say. I’m thinking just the usual fuckup and/or drunk hitting a power pole. Problem is our closeness to McDill AFB which is home to CENTCOM, SPECOPS and all the other DotMil “important stuff” that’s there. We’ll see. the projection is that the power is going to be off til around 22:30 tonight. If it gets too hot/uncomfortable we got the pool. And for boredom? It’s good to be bored. I -am- being ‘better safe than sorry’ though and we’re at ‘low yellow’ in readiness. Firearms in Condition One and at hand.
Ya never know Aye?
So, will update as we go More Later I Remain The Intrepid Reporter
