Third World Country?

For the second morning in a row, I woke up to a dark world. That is, the power went down in my building (and across the Choate campus) overnight, disabling off alarm clocks, lights, computers, etc. I was lucky yesterday in that I awoke briefly a few hours before my scheduled 6:30 a.m. departure for Van Cortlandt Park with some cross country runners; once I realized my alarm clock was down, I programmed the alarm in my Treo to wake me at 6:00. At least this morning, getting up was not a worry. But when power is gone, one quickly is reminded just how much of our daily lives are dependent on electricity. I couldn't work (no computers), read (no lights), watch television, or much else all that easily. Here's hoping the problem has been solved!
