Snagged on the powerliine

I'm confused. Is this an open thread or reserved for politics?

I was sitting here working when things got real quiet. Then the battery backup starts beeping. We are powerless. (I'm on the cell.)

Earthquake? Tornado? Terrorist attack? Forgot to pay the bill? Nope. Nope.

Across the highway and two doors down, a semi leaving the grocery store caught on power lines and snapped two poles. Wonderful chaos.

Going to be a while getting that one fixed!

Not sure how to make this political.

Darned infrastructure! I blame, hmmmm... Bush.
