Blackout

Monday, 16 August 2010

There’s romance and there’s reality. And then there’s God awesome sense of humour.

Had I walked into our candle-lit home last night, I might have thought that PC had decided to create a romantic ambiance to welcome me home from a board meeting. It would certainly not have been the first time that he did something so thoughtful.

However, the text message PC sent, warning me of a power outage, gave it away. The candles were functional rather than decorative. Watching PC pack via candlelight did provide some entertainment.

It seems that our entire block went dark at 8:30pm. Good thing the kids were asleep by then. I can just imagine their reaction if every light in the house and the televisions and computer all shut down at once.

Not nearly as shocking, however, as it was for us at 3:00am. When they all came back online.
