Xoff unplugged

When Joni Mitchell wrote, "You don't know what you've got till it's gone," she wasn't talking about electricity.

But being without it for two hours this morning was a rude reminder of just how totally dependent we are. Except for a cell phone, I was virtually out of commission. Even the phones require power.

I ended up out on the deck reading a book, certainly not a bad thing.

But I'm clearly not ready to go off the grid.
