"Pepco may be the worst utility ever" playlist (and that’s being kind)

Friday night a serious storm ripped through the greater Washington DC area, causing serious power outages, damage, downed trees, all the usual hijinks. Of all the power companies in the region, Pepco (my power utility) has a history of being… slow to respond, react and restore.

I’m trying to be patient, as I know that even 4 days later there are over 300,000 Pepco customers still without power. But we’re worried about losing the food in the fridge, which I’m constantly restocking with ice, and I’m worried about the stress on our pets. It has been 100 degrees every day since the storm hit, and I’m striving to keep this entry from veering into NSFW profanity.
