I haven't seen your bird.
Okay, I realize this is a small thing in the overall scope of the problems we all face, but it still pissed me off. I got a voice mail message from Madison Gas & Electric day before yesterday saying we "might" experience a power outage tonight (Wednesday, Sept. 26) as they addressed some sort of utility problem. They said it might begin about 8:30 p.m. tonight and could last a couple of hours. I figured the call was most likely a power company CYA warning and wouldn't affect most users. I was wrong. I admit that I'm kind of a TV junkie and I was looking forward to watching one of my favorite shows, the series premiere of "Criminal Minds." Sure thing, halfway into the show everything went dark for a little more than an hour. Now, wouldn't a power company planning a power outage normally do it during the daytime when it wouldn't plunge people into darkness? The traffic lights were all still working. I know because I sat out on my front porch and chilled since there was nothing else to do in my dark house. Okay, rant over. Small problem of little consequence. It just annoyed me.
