The lights are off...and I'm home
The power went out for about a half an hour. I am so addicted to television that I actually hooked up my Pinnacle HDTV tuner to my Dell to watch halting motion of Dave and Lois on Channel 3 news. Fortunately, everything is back up and running. Lights can go on, tv's can glow, I can charge this macbook.... You don't realize how dependent you are on electricity till it's gone. I hope it doesn't go out again. It was the fault of downed wires according to the PG&E power outage phone line, and it's still windy, so it may happen again! By the way, I think non-corded phones should be able to function during a power outage. That's why I still have my corded Conair slimline phone from 1990 in my room. Just in case.
