LANSING, MI- Over the spring break holiday, thousands of Michigan residents were blacked out. Including many in Lansing and the surrounding areas.
“I thought that since most of the kids had gone out of town for spring break, we would be safe from these sort of rampant blackouts,” said lifelong Kalamazoo resident, Patty Johnson-Freight. “We typically don’t experience these kinds of shenanigans over breaks.”
The blackout affected some Michigan residents more than others. Lansing resident, Stephen Pariti had a concerning story.
“I was naked in my basement when the blackout came. The next thing I know, I’m all wet and I have bruises all over my right leg. I’m gonna have to text my neighbor and ask if they know what happened,” Stephen claimed.
Students of Michigan State, Grand Valley State, and Western Michigan University are no strangers to blackouts, especially on spring break.
“Spring break is the time to blackout. There are few responsibilities, it’s a great break in the semester, so I don’t blame the state for just going for it this week,” said one Michigan State senior Rylie Bouvier.
DTE and Consumers Energy are working to solve the problem, but in the mean time, residents are making the most of this black out.
“This blackout is amazing! It’s like the horrible memory of spending spring break at GVSU is just vanishing,” commented Grand Rapids native and GVSU student, Allen Daily.
As this black out gets nursed back to life, we can all only hope for no hangover to occur once the students return for classes.
