Heavy rains and 60-mph winds
swept through Phoenix late last night, knocking out power to thousands of homes.

When I got home I discovered mine was one of them.

The silence can be unbearable when the walls stop humming, and the darkness quickly encroaches on one's mind.

Thank Marconi I had my trusty battery-powered Zenith Royal 1000 Transoceanic shortwave on the nightstand. Introduced in 1957 and still playing... next to my bed.

From what I heard, there's some trouble brewing Down Under regarding pensions given to former Premiers in New South Wales. This on the eve of Morris Iemma's swearing in. It's London to a brick that won't be addressed any time soon but it's something Iemma may have to nut out eventually.

The rugby season is heating up as well and, while I'm not much of one for sports - even American sports I almost understand, the fans Down Under seem quite excited by the prospects this year.

I later heard some traditional music on a broadcast from China and several news reports that sounded distressing, and might've been downright alarming if I spoke even a lick of Chinese.

There were way too many religious broadcasts of the fire and brimstone variety. Apparently the world is going to hell in a handbasket but there's some guy coming back who'll fix everything. I didn't catch his name but I think he's somebody's son or something.

Lastly I tuned into the local bandwidth and heard that a large storm had passed through Phoenix, leaving a lot of people without power tonight. Yeah, no shit.

So that's what I do when the lights go out... I listen to the world.
