My wife and I both left the house around 8:00 AM, she went to work and I left to do some errands. When I got back home, I found the following:
-My oven clock was showing 11:12.
-My coffee maker was displaying a blinking 1:36 AM.
-My cable box was showing the correct time of 1:24 PM.
After a few minutes with pen and paper, I pulled out my cell phone and sent a text to my wife, letting her know the exact times when the power went out and came back on again.
What were those times, and how did I figure it out?
(We can assume, for this problem, that all clocks were displaying the correct time when the power outage occurred)
Thanks to Bobo for sending this -inspired by actual events that took place in early November!
