Power came back a few minutes ago, but not before I took a shower using a pocket flashlight hung from the shower curtain. Who wants this kind of adventure while on vacation? We’ve lost a half day.
I still can’t believe there was nothing about this on any Las Vegas news site. We report outages a lot smaller than this which affects both tourists and locals who work here.

Sorry you lost all that time. At least it wasn’t July! I can’t imagine being there with no A/C. Were any of the elevators running?
Its obvious that you are (or were) a ham. At least you had a flashlight.
I’m heading to Caesars in AC in two weeks. Hopefully I’ll have heat and light. No power cuts into blackjack time.
Geoff, Was it this one?
