power outage

From shortly before 9 a.m. to shortly before 12:00 p.m., there was a power outage in the neighborhood ... or, if my neighbor is to be believed, from Worcester to all of western Massachusetts.

What writing I had planned on the oh-so-electrical computer was thrown into a cocked hat.

But there was water (gravity) and gas for the stove.

Things were quieter without the electricity. Strange how something intrinsically silent can make so much noise and ease the clangor by its absence.

  1. And now there no local newspaper to report on it.

    Do they run Preparedness Ads in your area?

    Without a smartphone, tablet or laptop?

    No generator?

    No Universal Power Supply?

    Hope you at least have a battery powered radio and extra batteries.

    Reminds me I still haven’t gotten around to buy a weeks worth of canned and freeze dried chow.
