Took the opportunity to take some pictures of town with the lights out, while power reduction measures were in place due to one town generator being out of order and another being out of service for preventive maintenance - which left only the Cat in the Box (CITB), a temporary and smaller town generator, carrying the entire power load for the town, minus Crary and JSOC on the Crary emergency generator and Building 155 on its own generator.
