Readers Respond: What Do You Miss The Most During a Black Out?

Be the first to respond


From the article: Emergency Preparedness
When a storm, hurricane, or earthquake hits an area, black outs often occur and households are left without electricity and other utilities. However, modern life has us very dependent on having a power source. We have become very dependent on electricity. Think of everything we depend upon that is powered by electricity, for example: our lights, heat, refrigerators, most of our phones, the way we get information by radio or television, and much of out transportation.

Please for those of you who have experienced being without electricity, tell us what is was like, and what made it the hardest for you?
