At 6:00pm today, minutes before I arrived home from the wasteland of Detroit, our crappy power grid succumbed to the high winds. While not surprised, I was a bit annoyed at the timing having hoped to get a few hours of Battlefield in. The wife demanded her television be returned to operation, which became my immediate priority. Once the generator was up and powering the TV and refrigerator, we watched "Cedar Rapids" while our neighbors enjoyed the stone age. More importantly, Lila didn't have to spend one minute doing something other than watching TV. The power eventually came back around 8:30pm, but the cable modem refused to come back in time for any Battlefield action.
