We've got problems, here, with intermittent power outages. It usually happens on the order of four times per year...enough to be irritating, but not enough to get too riled about it.

Then, last night, we had something of a flurry of them.

I counted. Six power outages all night.

With the first one, I didn't even realize what had happened. To sleepy me, it seemed like the iPod in its port suddenly turned on and started playing. I reached over and shut it off, and then fell back asleep (0430 hours).

However, on the second and subsequent power losses, I fully awoke, and realized that the power was gone. Each time it returned, I turned off the music, and reset the clock with its two alarms.

I gather that the rains are causing the power company trouble. What a pity.
