Fingers Crossed, Ears Open

Although alternating current in the WEB OF EVIL 'hood is more likely to go when it rains (or when some sumbitch cutting branches drops a few on the Dep't. of Water & Power lines, as happened recently) than during a heat wave, this is a helluva heat wave. Just dared the outside now the sun's down, took out the trash & saw a box that had until very recently contained a brand new box fan in the dumpster. More demand.

Remembering that at the croaker's office in Santa Monica yesterday the overhead fluorescent lighting kept flickering, & once went out completely, noting that 1,200 customers are w/o power in NoHo, & reading another local on the iNternet complaining that his juice was intermittent, I figured it was only a matter of time until a transformer explodes around here & everything goes, but why bother anticipating agony? (Why not, also.) Now it appears inevitable, as I can hear the fans slow when the voltage drops.
