A Little Horror Story

So I wake up this morn---go to kitchen to make coffee---hit light---nothin

Was fine at bedtime last night

Check breaker--not tripped---switch it anyway

So I get my meter and start checkin the circuit---

Weird thing is---I get 120 volts everywhere--yet not working

Literally checked plugs---read 120 volts---plug in drill---nope

Not how I wanted my day to start

I go to Dr. Google---indicates could be a wonky neutral

So I pull plugs--switches and finally fixtures

Of course the very last fixture--this is what I find

Being the house is only 3 years old --I'll notify the safety authority on this fixture

Could have been bad---junction box was black

Was one of those halogen numbers
