At about 5 AM this morning, the power went out. The houses across the street still had power, but everyone on my side of the street and everyone
within a few blocks behind my house was without power. After 10 minutes or so, I started hearing sirens. The sirens came and went, but I kept hearing
them for the next hour. At one point, I saw an ambulance going down another street. Its lights were flashing, but it wasn't going very fast. A fire
truck went up my street very slowly with its lights flashing. It also had very bright side lights on...I've never seen these lights before, and with
their position and intensity it seemed like they were being used to look at (or between) the houses. A bit later, another fire truck (or it could have
been the same one) went down my street in the opposite direction, though this time no lights were on.
The power came back on around 6 AM. The weirdest part, however, is that I've seen nothing on the local news about this. Nothing on TV at 6 AM and
nothing on the websites of local stations and papers. I really can't believe that the power going out and then all the sirens going a few minutes
later was a coincidence, but there's just no one reporting it. I live in St. Paul, MN.
Anyone have any thoughts? The media blackout here is confusing me.
