My electricity just came back on 20 minutes ago after being off for two hours.
Was there a storm? No.
Was it raining in my neighborhood at all? No.
Were there strong winds? No.
Was it so hot today that everyone was running their AC at full blast and the power grid got overloaded? No.
Do I have any effing clue why my power went off for two hours in the middle of the afternoon on a calm, mild, sunny autumn day? Did Ameren give me any information whatsoever about why the electricity was off when I called them?
Did I mention this is the second time my electricity has gone off in the past five days? No. Because I am getting so used to my electricity going off for more than an hour at least once EVERY WEEK that it hardly even seems like a bloggable event anymore.
I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE! WHEN DO I GET TO MOVE OUT OF THIS PLACE? WHEN?
Oh, that's right-- when my stupid lease ends in January. Assuming I have managed to pull something like $2,000 in closing costs and $5,000 in down payment out of my, um, hat by then.
