In the dark in Cole Harbour

Early Thursday morning I awoke to zeros on my microwave clock. We lost power through the night. I have a battery-powered alarm clock for just such purchases. I reset the clock. Again Saturday morning I reset the clock. Then the power goes out for two hours on Saturday night. Right in the middle of the Habs/Leafs game. I reset the clock. It's Sunday morning now and again I must yes, you guessed it, reset the clock. I wonder what it was this time. Too much salt on the lines? Maybe it was the turtles. Yeah, too many turtles were weighing down the lines and caused an outage. Seemingly these onerous rate-hikes aren't going toward infrastructure. —Powerless
