I think I personally caused a neighborhood blackout last night.
My treadmill is in our loft. When I turn on the power in the loft to the lights, to the ceiling fan and to the treadmill, it has to be done in a certain order – treadmill first, then fan, then lights – and I forgot about that. It always trips our circuits when I do it in the wrong order, and last night I did it wrong so I blew our fuse. Just shortly after Chris reset the fuse box and I turned the treadmill back on, the entire neighborhood lost power. It was pitch black. Was that my fault?! Thankfully it was only for a minute. Oops! My bad.
