OK, so last night there was a power cut at just after midnight; the whole estate went dark, so far as I could see from my flat, even the street lights went out. It was really creepy, and really, really dark - you don't realise HOW dark until even the street-lights go off.

Anyway, I thought nothing more of it, because the power all came back what, 40-50 minutes later?

This morning, I'm on the bus, on my way to work, and we're just going down Ransome's way... and the power substation near to the Cranes factory (here):

View Larger Map is cordoned off with police tape, and there's a couple of officers standing outside. And there's a towel hanging over the railing. My brain instantly goes to "did someone go in there and get fried? O_o"

I'm keeping a close eye on the news, now. *creeped out* And that's ignoring what sounded like three gunshots that I heard just after the streetlights came back on and the burglar alarm at the school opposite my flat started going off.

(OK the maps thing was just me seeing if Googlemaps was going to work for a change, hence why it's under a cut.
Edit: OK so hospital intranet is paranoid and doesn't want to show it because it's probably flash-based. I'll test it again when I get home. GRR. Have a picture instead. Gonna try replicate something like this in a picture, although I know it won't work properly.)
