  • That is a great article. I can't help but find it a bit ironic that he posted (and I read) that article on the web.

    When the power went out with that last round of storms, my wife and I lit up the candles and a couple of hurricane lamps and picked up a couple of books. It was very nice to sit here in quiet (aside from the occasional rustle from a dog) and read a book. There was none of the usual hum from the computers or inane babbling from someone on TV. No phone ringing (usually someone needing help with their computer) or e-mail sounders telling me that someone else that I don't know is following me on Twitter (not that I'm going anywhere on there).

    I just thought it was a very nice, relaxing way to spend part of an evening. Maybe we should all create our own "power outage" occasionally and just relax.

  • A power outage does give a different feel to things. Looking across the valley and seeing no lights except for an occasional vehicle and quiet! OF course, I found out that I had not refilled the gas lantern so light from that was about as good as candles. We ended up with all candles.
