I was watching a movie with my sister and the lights start flickering. She asks what's going on and I tell her that it sometimes happens in the heat, and even the power will go out. No less than 5 seconds after than that the power goes out. After being out for a while I call the fire department to see if there was an accident or something. Seems like my street was the only one in the whole town out, and the fire department had no idea. I then proceed to call the power plant. They said there were a few on my street that already called and that a guy was sent out. after about an hour and a half, the power still hasn't come back on. I go outside to see if the guys came yet, and all the street except the area that gets power from the transformer across from my house had power. By now, the house has gotten real warm due to the heat and humidity. My pugs and boxers start to pant and drool real bad, because they have a hard time breathing in the heat. A while later another crew comes to fix the transformer. They have it pretty much fixed, when bam the transformer blows. Now off to the station they go to get a new transformer and other supplies. The place they go to get everything is 5 minutes across town. It takes them close to 5 hours to get back to fix it. For those 5 hours I'm trying to sleep, but can't due to the heat, humidity, my sister being scared, the total silence, and my dogs panting and making puddles of drool everywhere. When they finally arrive, it takes them over an hour to fix it. By the time it was finally fixed and they left, it was after 6 this morning. I didn't get to sleep till after 6:30. It's weird how all this happened on just my street. I feel like crap now because I got maybe 4 hours sleep in all since waking up yesterday morning.
