There Once Was A Squirrel...

who ruined my day.  Well, not really "ruined" my day, but made it complicated.

See, said squirrel, who MUST have been a male...climbed into an electrical substation in the business district of Olde Towne...I am guessing to "get a nut"...and he died by electrocution, thus taking out the WHOLE DARN GRID with him.

This mishap occurred at 9:27 am yesterday.  The power did not come back on until 1:30 pm.  It takes approximately one hour to heat a brick pizza oven to the precise temperature needed for amazing pizza.

Lunch service was gone yesterday.  Completely DONZO.

Damn Squirrel.

True Story.  It only happens in Marlene's World.

This is Home Girl and I am praying for a Squirrel Free Day.
