sometimes weird things happen. tonight, the power went off while i was watching the finale of the most recent (hopefully not the last?) season of LXD. only for about 30 seconds before everything came back, thankfully, but it was scary. just all of a sudden POP and then OUT. i went outside & immediately heard sirens - it was pitch black out there, too, streetlights out. they came back, as well, but the sirens just kept coming & then suddenly a series of loud reports - sounded like gunshots, but i don't have a lot of experience w/ gunshots in person (thankfully) ... it could have been transformers blowing, but i would think the power would be staying off in that case... idk, but it was certainly scary!!
