Today, no lights in my Irish Literature classroom (I rolled up the shades and enough light came in for us to manage); yesterday morning, no power of any kind in the Foggy Bottom metro station.

It was strange, entering that station and finding it almost totally dark. A massive cave. Metro personnel lit our way with flashlights. Tourists (tourist season has begun) hitched strollers over their shoulders and marched up the dead escalators.

Outages, as faithful readers know, have become a way of life for UD. Garrett Park, the town where she lives, often loses power. For the town’s upcoming musicale, UD wrote a song called The Garrett Park Outage Song.

Here’s UD‘s latest column (“A Hot Time in the Old Town”) in the Garrett Park newspaper.
