Two Hours and 15 minutes later, we finally have power back

I had been sitting here trying to get some work done, but my laptop battery sucks, and you can't get much done without an Internet connection. Two hours and 15 minute later, we finally got it back. Apparently it was concentrated in a couple-block radius around my house, as when we called Pacific Power, they didn't give us a very high number. When we called after the second hour had passed, they didn't seem to know about any outages. So we reported ours (after checking the breakers) and things turned back on after another 15 minutes.

The wind is Bend is blowing hard today, which is the reason behind the outage. I guess gusts were hitting nearly 80 MPH in town, and I believe it. I have yet to go outside and check out the damage, now that things are calming down (only about 25 MPH now). Granted, I don't think I can make it off the couch, so nevermind.
