Inappropriate preparations

My lights flickered.

Hurricane Bill has roared northward past the Eastern Seaboard, leaving eddies of thunderstorms behind, and one of them is passing over my 'burb right now.

The lights flickered. Uh-oh, I thought. They might go out any second. So I found a flashlight to keep with me, and I thought I'd turn all unnecessary lights off, to conserve electricity.

You know, so I'd have some left if the power went off.


I know, it doesn't make any sense. But the thought came to me as if it were a perfectly natural idea. It took only a split second to realize it was absurd.

But why did I think it to begin with?
