I was at the movie theater watching the trailer for The Dark Knight before The Bourne Ultimatum, when the power went out for the theater. And most of the mall, and several blocks. Then I went home later and found the area around my house cordoned off because a car carrier big rig had hit and sheared off the top of the power pole on the corner that I live on. Power was still up at the time, since the transformer was still dutifully attached to and hanging with the top of the pole, suspended by high voltage lines.
Of course, the power went out later in the night when the city workers had to actually fix it.
Then today I saw an old lady fall over badly because she tripped on the slightly raised ramp of concrete adjacent to her handicapped parking spot at Walgreens. So much for improved access. I was on the phone with the HMO at the time and had to put them on hold to go help her out.
Also I’m sick. Hopefully getting better though.
Bourne was pretty good when i went back to watch it later, but not as good as Overdrift.
