I used to work on Junction Road, which was unfortunately when I still lived in Beaver Dam. 55 miles each way, and a job where leaving early for any reason was considered an unexcused absence and constituted a write-up - I distinctly remember one snowstorm where had I left work two hours early, I probably could have made it home in the normal hour, maybe a little more, rather than the almost 3 hours it took that night.

We didn't have a power outage where I live, but the lights blinked twice in rapid succession twice in a 30-minute period. Took out my modem both times, but nothing a reboot didn't immediately fix.
