and found out why our power had been out at some point during the day yesterday.
A guy on our block went to the police station, where he began raving and the cops soon realized he was hallucinating. At some point in the rambling he said he had left the gas on at home and they decided to check. The police found he had majorly fucked up a gas line and it was pouring into the house. Power was shut down to the area and they had evacuated 12 homes. One of which was ours but no one was home.
There are only 4 other homes on this block, so I'm giving my street the side eye wondering which neighbor tried to blow us all to kingdom come.
