Flakey power

I just have to vent this morning . . .

Last week there was a night when, according to Vickey, the lights in our home just kept flickering on and off. I was in Vegas, presenting at a social media conference, and didn’t think much of it.

Then last night, after dinner, I noticed the lights in the house were indeed flickering.

I tried working on the computer and it kept losing its internet connection, and even shut down on its own a couple times. Lovely!

We were awakened about every two hours last night with the power going on and off, the alarm clock resetting to 12:00 and flashing, the computers shutting down then restarting with that silly Windows sound when they would reboot, the printer doing the same dumb thing, the appliances beeping, etc.

It was about 4 a.m. by the time I got all the electronics and appliances unplugged. And when the alarm goes off at 6 — a travel alarm operated by a battery, mind you — that just doesn’t make for a good night’s sleep, now does it?

I’m ornery and grumpy. And to top it off, I have tons of work to get done and a Social Media Club of Salt Lake City meeting tonight in Salt Lake. It’s a big day for me.

So if I seem abrupt or rude, I apologize in advance. I need my sleep!
