Lack of Power – Dammit!

I heard the transformer blow as the room light went dim and the ceiling fan slowed to a crawl.

My dilema was a total lack of power.

No light.

No internet.

No fans to work the breeze.

So it brought to mind how screwed we are plugged into a utility. What happens when the power fails? If it’s daytime we can pick up a book and read by the window. At night we can go out and point at the stars.

Hmm… occasionally a power failure might be a good thing. But not for too long. Just long enough to catch your breath and not long enough to defrost the freezer.

With the power off I could write this blog on the battery operated laptop. When the internet came back with the power, I could post it.

Aren’t you the lucky one!
