Power outage early today

I woke up early this morning to a resounding BOOM, and the power immediately flickered out. About 30 seconds later there was a flicker of power, another thunderous BOOM, and the power dropped off again for I don't know how long. I dozed off and when I snapped awake again, I presume as the power came back on and my stereo went into its Demo Mode in which it plays any CDs that are in its trays, it was 06:30 according to my alarm clock (thank God for battery back-up).

So I didn't have to shower etc. in darkness, which figures because I was actually prepared with candles and such. Seems the only time a power outage affects me is when I'm not ready for it.
