UPDATE: Blackout 2008

The power came back on immediately after I finished getting ready by candlelight in 60 degree air and right as I was staring at my garage door trying to remember what my dad told me about how to open it during a power outage.

I love you, electricity.

I've used the "I can't come into work because I don't have any electricty" excuse before. Not my proudest moment, but they bought it.

Sgt said...

generally, that cord that hangs down from whatever pulls the door up will disengage it and allow you to manually lift.

Although, you could have just stood outside, batted eyelashes, and called for help from any passerby. (OK.. maybe that only works in the movies)

so...ummmmm....LOST? TONIGHT? Can you even begin to stand the anticipation? Because I'm seriously dying on the inside!

Sarah said...

Natasha, that's fantastic!

Sgt, yes my dad made sure he showed me how to do it last night. I wonder how hard it would be to bat your eyelashes in 3 degree weather? Well I could've definitely gone to bother my next door neighbor like I did when I got locked out of my house at 1am. I think that would officially make me the world's most annoying neighbor, right?

Mon, I know this is sad, but I'm so excited that I can't even sit still. BRING IT ON!!!

Glad to hear that you made it through the blackout alive, Sarah!
