Disappointing Power Outage Bores Students

At about 3:27 p.m. this afternoon, power campus-wide went out with no warning and for no apparent reason, considering what an unseasonably lovely day it is. American Electric Power turned off the power intentionally for some reason related to the campus construction, according to the woman who, her identity shrouded in darkness, interrupted my afternoon class with this information.

Neither a flicker nor a proper sustained power outage, this three-minute event fell into the worst category of Kenyon blackouts: just long enough to be promising but too short for anything interesting to really start happening.
