My power is out.



There are three GE trucks and 8 dudes standing around a transformer that's found its way to the ground on my street.

I wouldn't know what to do either.

What are you doing in the meantime to while your electricity is out? Is heat, water, telephone service compromised while those brainless dorks continue to stand there staring at the mystery transformer?

PM me if you wish.

They will have to replace it. Probably waiting for the new one, or calling the location in.

I tugged it...

to a magazine. Something I haven't had to do since I was 14.

I also made a few calls this morning to Redux Beverages to get some product for my team.
