Just had to share a grin with a few folks who would understand.

I was all ready to hit the Classic Exchange yesterday (Sunday) with my usual 
collection of powerful boatanchor rigs like my Globe King, Valiant, DX100, 
32V3, Apache, and on; but thanks to some freak weather the power transmission 
line supplying my area went down Saturday evening at about 6:30 and was out for 
25 hours!  So I hit the CX airways Sunday afternoon on 40 meters with my mighty 
Argonaut 505 running from a 12 volt storage battery.  With it's powerful 3 
watts out, in an hour I worked stations in CA, OH, CO, NC and MA from my qth in 

I'm still smiling.
