Power Outage in Yakima – What Happened?

Well, for a few minutes in Yakima, the power went out. According to one eye-witness (a.k.a., my wife) she was there when it happened and what was caused by it.

Here’s what my wife said:

I was dropping Laura (our daughter) off at (Whitney) school I was heading towards the car. I heard what sounded like a gunshot, this big, booming sound. I looked up at the power line and saw one of the lines, just snapping lose, bouncing up and down. It wasn’t until I left that I realized it caused the power to go off all around, including the power lights.

Nobody, apparently, knows what to do when the traffic lights aren’t working.

So you know, if traffic lights aren’t working, it’s to be treated like a four-way stop.

So, what do you do when the power goes out?

I remember, growing up, it was almost a treat when the power went out. That was when we actually used our ‘emergency’ stuff, lit candles and played board games, forcing ourselves to be a tv-style family.

Now-a-days you just whip out your smartphone or laptop as it works off a charge and play Angry Birds or something.

So, what do you do?
