They turned the lights back on!! Yay!

Yeah, yesterday, my college campus was completely dark. The power had been knocked out during the storm we had Tuesday night and our power company had said something about having it back on by 7AM--no such luck. So, we went to class anyways. Yup. They made us go to class in the dark, and let me tell ya, some of these buildings are EXTREMELY creepy in the dark--like Kenrick, the oldest building on campus. It was like walking into a tomb or something. *shiver*. Anyways, we still went to class and I had a paper due at 1 and no printer to print it on so I had to go the public library and print it off before my 11o'clock class. When I got back, we had partial lights. I think it was four buildings. None of the buildings my classes were in had any power :(. I can't belive how gung-ho so many of the teachers were to continue class despite all the technical difficulties it caused (many of my profs use PowerPoints). It was a strange day. I could not believe they made us go to class anyways. Dark stairwells and all. No fun. They had the lights back on in time for night classes, long after the 2 o'clock attempt failed to happen. Everyone has power again today. Yay. Our little response to the power outage yesterday got us on the news. I don't think it did much to endear us to the community. I think it just made us look silly. Still going to class in a power outage? Really? Isn't there some risk there? Apparently not. LOL
Doesn't class in the dark sound like fun? No? Yeah, that's what I thought.
Redhead out to enjoy the well lit campus. :P
Peace and <3
