Electricity

I’m currently sitting in the cafeteria at work. There’s been a city wide power failure. We have no computer or phones available for use. My immediate reaction was to head to the microwave to warm up my oatmeal. Oops. 

It makes me realize how much this era in human history relies on electricity. I’m not so sure that’s a good thing. That which makes powers the conveniences of our daily lives can really cripple us when taken away.  

That’s all. Carry on.
