My electricity was restored at 12:11 p.m. today (Sunday), after 2 days, 11 hours and 18 minutes. I can report that although having no power was an inconvenience and not very much fun, nothing happened to me that would be worth writing about.
Please remind reporters, columnists, and other newspaper personnel that they are not to write about their experiences when the power was out. (A Red Alert would have been issued to stop asking random people what it was "like" not having power, except my power was out.)

For example, what are we to make of this forlorn family struggling to live without electricity?

I'm sure it was quite the out-of-town rainstorm.
