Has there ever been a time when the power went out, but you kept trying to use electricity? For example, flipping a light switch, putting food into a microwave, or plugging in a phone?
We are so used to having electricity every hour of every day that when the power goes out, sometimes it takes the brain a little time to adjust. Using technology that relies on power has become second nature.
Recently I posted a picture to Facebook that challenges people to turn off their electricity for just one week and see what happens. Anyone who does this will soon find out that we rely on power for more than just lights, microwaves, and electronics.
There are several other modern conveniences that require power. Preparing For SHTF made a list of things to remember when the lights go out. Follow the link below to check it out.
