Well tonight I was cooking supper and the lights where flickering. I was short an egg so I went to a neigbours who I lent some the other week to see if they would return the favour. I came home to no power. My daughter said there was a huge bang and then the lights went out. We went down to the basement and we could smell burning wires and smoke. We called our landlord and the firedepartment. Ends up there was no fire just an explosion of the fuse box. We had to get hydro in to fix it. I had to go to a neighbours to see if I could finish cooking my casserole. We went for 5 hours. I didn't mind so much but I was starting to get myLot withdrawal.

LOL mylot withdrawal - what I went through last week when my phone was out for almost 24 hours. I have figured out though my laptop will run on battery power for at least an hour :) that's at least a bit helpful as spring is coming and we are known to loss power a lot then. Glad you got your casserole done though and not too serious a problem.

It was not easy not to have electricity in the house and it will took you forever to figure out where are the things you needed and specially you are amidst cooking. Welcome back linda hope tonight will be a different night lol!!!
