Power Outage

Posted on Tuesday, June 7, 2011 in Other

Last night there was a power outage here. It lasted over three hours. That’s never happened before, as far as I know. Certainly not in my lifetime. You read about it happening to people living out in the woods, way up north or something, but in a town? No way.

It really brought home to me how dependent we are on electricity. We couldn’t go online, except my mom and sister on their iPhones – and they were rapidly running out of battery time. We couldn’t cook – and it was about dinner time. Not knowing how long the whole thing would last, we hardly dared to open the fridge to get stuff we needed. Due to the thunder storm, the light from outside was very poor, so reading was pretty much out of the question too. It was such a relief to see the light go back on.
