    Our power was out for about an hour and a half, but is back on. Rocky Mountain Power has been pretty poor here this year, with close to 10 outages totaling almost 30 hours without power. I view each outage as an emergency preparedness drill and try to be better prepared each time for the next one, but even then its very annoying to be woke up by the beep-beep-beep of all the battery backups.
