Default the van rules the world!!!!

this weekend i was back in windom to see some old friends... around 8pm on friday night we had stopped at a friends house, i was driving the van...

i shut the motor off and then turned off the headlights... at the EXACT millisecond that i shut the headlights off, the ENTIRE town of windom lost electricity... it was truely the most bizarre thing that has happened to me.. the chances are 1 in none... the power was off for 1.5 and as far as i know, nobody knows why...

after the power went out, the ONLY lights on in town were headlights, there wasnt even traffic lights or anything

the hospital was runniing off a generator, but that was pretty close to the edge of town...

i cant even imagine what it was like when the east coast lost power back then...

if you have never been outside in pitch black....I mean where you cant even see your own hand when outstreched...it is quite an experience.

sounds like a good time to stir trouble

i thought it was really cool, nothing to do but look up at the clearest sky that you will ever see in a big city (well there was something else to do but this is a family forum )

I would freak out in the dark, I've literally freaked out, I freak out during black outs at night

I have no hearing and take away my sight and I'm lost
