The city where I live.

Nice, warm, sunny, light breezy day, and we have a fucking power outage at about 1:30, and just got the power returned.

Useless bastards.

I refuse to give my input on this because this thread isn't "official"

This isn't an isolated incident.
It happens quite a bit here, but usually when I'm at work.

A few years ago, the city officially changed it's name from Grover City to Grover Beach, and real estate values jumped about 20%.

Maybe the lighting from all of the beach volleyball tournaments is causing the blackouts. You should ask the lifeguards to check.

Well then why the hell are you so grouchy? You have high property values plus a goddamn beach. I can't even imagine what kind of miserable bastard you'd be if you lived in a place like Omaha.

Maybe you should change the name of your city to Omaha Beach. That produces a lot of nice imagery.

I live in a town of less than 300. We have AmeranUE, They are notorious for outages. Unfortunatly there isn't much we can do about it. They "provide" gas and electric.
