Big booming thunderstorm last night that took out the electricity around 1:00 a.m. When I called it in on their no humans automated tell us about your power outage number the robot said they’d have it back on around 5:00 a.m. That didn’t happen. Nor did it happen at 7:00 a.m. nor 10:00 a.m. nor noon nor 3:00 p.m. According to their website, the outage area was basically just our neighborhood, the only area in Lawrence that was down, only 129 customers without power. Hmmph. So we took off in the car to go to a movie but I forgot to take a long sleeve shirt in case the theater was too cold. Turned around and went back to the house and the power was back on. Lesson learned. When the power goes out, just leave for a few minutes and come back.
The movie we saw was was the new Lion King. Pretty blah except for the animation which was incredible. It was like watching real animals (except they talked) in real landscape. Visually, it was a fantastic movie.
