Fire = Firemen + No

Fire = Firemen + No Work, Yea!

I'm sitting at my desk at 8:30am when all of a sudden the power goes out. Great, now I'm going to have to reboot the computer. It stays out for a minute and then comes back on, but only partially. Great, it's going to be a crappy, busy day work and I think "Glad I'm leaving at 2pm".

The power goes out again, but this time it stays out. After 10 minutes someone calls our electrical company to find out what is going on and they don't know but estimate it should be back on by 5pm. Then someone comes into work at 9am and says "Um, do you know that the transformer at the front of the office complex blew up?" (Our Plant is in a complex of about 6 small plants).

Yep, the transformer blew-up, was on fire and now we don't have power. The electrical company says it could be tomorrow before the power comes back on because the transformer has to be replaced, not a quick thing to do.

So at 10am they say, go home you can do nothing. So I am leaving earlier for Kentucky so we can make it there by Happy Hour!

So right now I'm at home (yea!), changed and going to get some lunch before heading out to meet my driving mate.

Exciting day or what!
