We lost power this morning, and cable stayed missing until maybe half an hour ago
. Of course, the situation is and was not nearly as serious as the one shown in this picture, which comes from Mississippi after Katrina. During that debacle, it was pretty much well known who and what was responsible for power failures, etcetera.
In contrast, here, when we lose electricity, it's off for a period of time, and it comes back on. Nobody explains anything or provides info on the cause. If we happen to see an uprooted tree in the front yard
, well, so much the better for explaining. Otherwise, it's anybody's guess.
