Not that kind.
Massive storm blew through the area in about an hour yesterday. Trees went down, some roofs were damaged, we were lucky to just have a couple big branches come down. However the power wound up being out for 16 hours! Fortunately we had about 15 pounds of ice already, about 3 fifths of liquor, and some sort of stuff called "food." Once the laptop died we had to pick up my roommates girlfriend since the light rail was down. I rode shotgun for fun to see the damage. Obscene traffic nightmare since the lights were out, luckily I was prepared with a G&T in a Nalgene bottle so I found it entertaining.
Once we returned it was card games with interesting drink mixes as the mixers were running low. Teuquila + orange and cream soda is not very good, too sweet and the cream flavor ruins it. However rum and grape soda with fresh lime juice was quite good actually.
Once cards got old we decided to see what the town was up to, so saddle up the vodka gatorades for discreet public drinking. Most houses seemed dark and quiet, a couple people out on the porches having a good time. It was only quarter to ten though so it was far to early for everyone to go to sleep. a walk to the main drag revealed where they all were, the bar!
My favorite neighborhood bar is run by a an enterprising individual who showed up and started shoving candles into beer bottles. I think it was actually better lit than usual. Of course it was cash only, fortunately I had a good amount on me as the ATMs obviously weren't working, than again, that bar is ALWAYS cash only. so couple good rounds of fortunately still cold beers later we decide to see if the other bars are open. One was as they had a generator, douche bag looking crowd though so we moved on, all the others had locked doors, so back home we decided to go.
Couple drinks later and I'm passed out on the couch, eventually make it to my bed. Woken up at about 8 to my fan kicking on and the TV coming back to life in the living room.
All in all a good drinking time was had. I wish I knew more people in the neighborhood so it could have been a downright party, but my roommate and I did alright for ourselves. I always love a good blackout, both kinds.
