    A Day Without Electricity!

    I want to ask you a question to all of you that what would happen if electricity on which our whole life is depend is gone for a day? Imagine a day without electricity and give your views. Thanks

    I don't have to imagine it because I've lived it. After Hurricane Irene in 2011, our electricity was out for five days. In 2012, Hurricane Sandy knocked out our power for nine and a half days.

    My views on it? It sucked. My house has a well with an electric pump, so no power = no running water, either. We were depending on friends and family members for showers, laundry, etc. during all that time. It's a very helpless feeling.

    In the years 1980, 1981, and 1982 I lived my summers without electricity as I worked as a surveyor and cruiser for Kimberly Clark north of Lake Superior. At first I wasn't sure I would like it; however, I adjusted to it and embraced it. As a university student it was extraordinarily frugal too; thus, I saved serious coin to finance my education.

    During the summer of 2004 my family was out of electricity for about 3 weeks. I found the time to be enduring, again I adjusted; although, my brat daughters and Better Half would spend time at my in-laws warm-showering and enjoying the many other attributes of power. Our many trees provided adequate shade from the scorching Florida sun and kept the house temperature comfortable, the cold water showers invigorated me somewhat, our gas barbecue served well for cooking. It cooled down enough at night to sleep soundly and there was so much yard debris to clean up in our neighborhood we were busy and time flew by...

    Thanks keith for sharing your experience.. I've also lived without electricity for more than a week, as i was born in a small town in india so electricity problem was common at that time.. But anyhow we managed to survive in that situation. Actually i think we depends our life on electricity completely.. And in that case, we should prepare for this situation..
