The neat thing about maintaining a blog is that I can go back and read my account of all significant happenings over the past six years. The first thing I did when I realized today was the fifth anniversary of the great blackout was go back and read my entry about the incident.
The lights were out in my house for 24 hours and 12 minutes. I remember it was a little stressful because my son was still sucking down bottles of milk but otherwise it was kind of fun. I went without the Internet and The Simpsons but a bunch of people came by with a cooler of drinks and we celebrated the lack of power with my radio, the BBQ and lots of laughs.
