As I am approaching the store, I note all the stores around it seem to have closed up early. No dice. Power outage hitting the entire area. I find pseudotheist and crew inside, and we stick around until we get kicked out. Was not meant to be! I hitch a ride home from another player, and get home in time to startle M. and catch a shower, so we can head over to girlie47's party. Which I was going to skip to hit the tourney. I'm not superstitious*, but I know a sign when I see it.
* - I totally am.
