Yesterday Mrs Hellions was at WalMart when the power went out.  This picture was taken from one of those little mini stores in the front of most WalMarts.



Here’s what was going on in the moment.

Post apocalyptic WalMart. Guess some power grid went down. They’re making everyone check out and not letting anyone in. Guess the generators aren’t working. Only flood lights and registers are on.


No windows in the building, a little bit of a skylight, but otherwise all of these people are in a big dark box.  Spooky.  I think I would have freaked out.

I was working in a TJ Maxx during the big East coast blackout of a few years back.  That was a much smaller store with some light coming in from the front, and even that was terrifying.
