    We are mostly only aware when we miss what we take for granted.

    Here in the mountains, nature does our power cuts and they are always unplanned. We are fortunate and challenged.

    A terrific point Ritu – we are SO reliant on electricity for every aspect of our lives….I think some sort of “outage” on a large scale will have everyone re-thinking how they access this power…we already have lots of ads here in the US for “home generators” that will keep you safe and warm when the power goes out elsewhere…

    (Why is it you always see the typos AFTER you save a comment, but often not when it’s possible to correct them? IF, is “I”, of course!)

    How true! I laugh at myself when I recall one power outage where I stewed about missing a segment of a television series I was watching at the time. “Well, maybe I should just catch up on letters,” I thought. Then I realized that meant taking out the electric typewriter I used way back then! LOL! I wrote letters out instead, something I hadn’t done for years, but realized how dependent IF was on power coming out of the wall.

    Those quiet (sometimes dark) spells can be enlightening.
