    When I got home from work my power was out and traffic was being rerouted the long way round because apparently a tree had been knocked over which took out a hydro pole which then sparked a grass fire which in this area and at this time of year is at high risk for forest fires.

    I checked in on my fishy friends with a flashlight and no one seemed to be stressed luckily. I just woke up at 1am when the power was restored and all the equipment is running. I'll get a better look at the inhabitants in the morning when the tank lights are on!

    Everyone's fine! Wondering why they didn't get any dinner last night and ravenous this morning, but fine:)

    That always gives me some paranoia too, luckily healthy fish are tougher thenwe think.

    Yeah, it's still something that worries me. Where I live now the power has a higher-than-average chance of going out and staying out for extended periods. Didn't help that it's a holiday long weekend (Canada Day!) so emergency crews had to be called in, probably from a ways away. I don't live in the middle of nowhere, I live at the far edge of it;)
