I was awaken this morning at 2:24am, not to a strange sound, but lack there of.
At around 224 i woke up to find the noise of my fan, air conditioner, and clock all off.
I quickly realized the power was out.
On any stormy night this wouldn't have been any problem and i wouldn't have thought twice about it but it wasn't storming and there was no "pop" from a transformer tripping.
This is where i started to get really weirded out.
I sat up in my bed and was convinced i heard someone walking around downstairs. (squeaky hardwood floors)
I was wide awake by this point and the thoughts started running though my head. Roommate? No he is in Boston, drunken friend? nope no one has a key.
I get out of my bed and go to get my pistol, my heart falls. I have sent it in to S&W for repair.
I slip my pants on and grab my knife out of my back pocket open it and make my way to the door, in the exact opposite corner of the room.
I took about 3 steps when the floor started to creek under my feet and i froze. Because the knife was my only form of defense i didn't want anyone to know i was awake, if in fact there was someone in the house.
I stood there like an old oak tree for about 5 min. or so but as you could imagine, it felt like an hour.
I heard a door shut then no other noised were heard so i sat on my bed in the dark for a few moments to listen.
Not even 3 min after i heard the door the power comes back on, fans clock air, everything.
I made my way down stairs and all doors were lock and there were no signs of anything missing.
Just really creeped me out and i intend to call friends, landlord, everyone to see if they stopped by for a bite to eat or to snag my beer or something.
Just thought id share that with y'all and see what everyone else would have done.
