Does anyone know why the power is out I. Marietta ga? 30062

Precious | October 17, 2022

Power has gone out in Boonie Dell 30062 at about 1:00 am.

Scot | October 17, 2022

The power has been out since around 8pm and it is currently 1 am. This is the second time this week. I was midway through decorating a clients house in animal crossing. Killed my whole vibe. Then I got told I live in the trenches by my cousin because the lights go out “too often” and the wifi in my area is absolutely atrocious. He’s not wrong about the wifi but I most definitely do not live in “the trenches”. Anyway, all that to say I am embarrassed and irritated. Turn my lights back on. I need the AC before I decide to go and sleep outside with the roaches. At least they have a nice breeze going on out there.
