twilight zone

i had a some kinda twilight zone experience just a while back. after i got home, i went to my room to check some things. when i flicked on the light switch, nothing happened. i tried for a couple times more, went from one switch to another (my room has 2 switches), tried all the combinations i knew, coz it normally acts up. still, it wouldn't turn on. i sought help from C, our driver, but he was not successful. i then asked the carpenter, R, who was working on something, to fix the light. but still, it wouldn't work.

then i suggested, maybe it short-circuited. they asked me to check the other lights from the other rooms. and guess what, they wouldn't turn on too. i was getting a little nervous coz my mom was out of town. i'm the boss for the next 3 days and i was feeling a little helpless.

R checked the circuit breaker and surprise, surprise... the switch for the ceiling lights on the 2nd floor rooms were off! how could that be?! nobody switched it off! and if it was caused by a short ciruit, even if the switch was turned on again, nothing should have happened. the lights should have remained off. but when they did turn on the switch from the circuit breaker, all the ceiling lights from the rooms started working!

that was spooky! right now, i'm not sure if i'm glad that it wasn't caused by a short circuit but some unexplainable cause. but i don't want to think too that my dad or something else could have a hand in it...

welcome to the twilight zone...

i called up my older brother and asked him if his family could sleep here tonight. they're on their way now. haayyy...

hi, i'm lurking again. u might've left the switches on when u turned on the circuit breakers. i think it would've been better if what had happened there was just, as you've described, a twilight zone episode. it could be your dad or someone reminding you to have your panel board and electrical lines checked. nothing's scarier than seeing your house charred to bits.

miwa: that's why i was so scared yesterday. i didn't want my mom coming home to a burned house. we're having the wires checked for everybody's peace of mind. =)
