Brouhaha – Sheryl’s Daily Prompt

Brouhaha fits particularly well today as we endured a major power outage yesterday, starting around 9:30 am lasting until 11:30 last evening.  The overlapping grids all circled around our place and the area had 15 power outage locations that took out power to 40,000 including neighbouring areas.
