Anyway, we called the power company and found out that some contractor had cut an underground power line and that they wouldn't be able to restore power before midnight so we collected a few candles since it was growing dark and settled in for the evening.
It was so hot in our apartment that we had to sit out on the deck with the breeze until we went to bed.
I also felt like I was living in the 1800s carrying a candle around to brush my teeth and do the dishes. The power came back on sometime in the middle of the night, but thankfully we went around the house turning off everything we had on when the power went out so nothing would wake us up when it came back. It was a warm evening without even the fan going!
