Top 10 Comments from Thursday Night's 'Blackout'
While some people freaked out a little, some of the best comments came from people cracking jokes in light of the power outage.
There probably couldn’t have been a worse night than last night to have a massive, unexplained power outage.
In the article’s comments, on Twitter and Annapolis Patch’s Facebook page, most readers shared messages of concern and irony. However, a select few immediately went to humor and shared some posts that literally had us laughing out loud.
Here is my personal roundup of the top 10 comments from last night’s blackout. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
