The weather took a nasty turn for us and about 2:30 this morning there was a large explosion when a transformer blew and we have been without power ever since. Oncor sends out texts to let you know when the power will be restored and we watch the restoral time go from 4AM to 6AM to 4PM to now noon tomorrow. We went to a friends house to charge all our electronics so I while I’m waiting, I thought you might be interested in a little Weird Walmart News.
