01/13....Tommy called Dad for a ride home Sunday night about 9:30. After Desperate Housewives ended at 10, Dad set out to get him, but noted the radio did not work. When Tommy got into the car he remarked that the headlights seemed dim. Dad then noticed that the power windows didn't work, but he set out for home nonetheless. The car lights got dimmer and dimmer and Tommy started pressing Dad to pull over, but Dad resisted, "We can make it!" Finally, just before entering the last two mile hilly and pitch-black no-phone area Dad VERY reluctantly relented and pulled over. The car then had only the weakest of beams. As they waited for Eric the car slowly petered out, finally stalling permanently. When Eric came, in a pouring rainstorm, Dad called the tow truck and the three of them waited for 25 minutes until he came. About sixty seconds prior, as Dad was trying to start his car for the 73rd time, a white flash shot across the landscape and all the lights in the area went off. "What did you do?" both Tommy and Dad screamed at each other. The tow truck guy thought it may have been lightning, but it turned out to be a transformer. Eric drove Dad and Tommy home, and the three of them found, of course, that the neighborhood for miles was suffering yet yet another power failure.
         Tommy remains convinced that Dad somehow set the whole thing off.
