With each electrical blackout, some people will be totally lost, while others may not notice.

Some businesses may close and lose revenue, while others remain open and profit. Schools may close and lessons taught in the classroom, or electronically, will cease. Families will talk face to face and look at each other again. Employees will figure sales tax, tip, and write a customer receipt. As youth and old alike are deprived, just for a little while, and know power outages are common occurrences during a storm.

Be prepared and take advantage of your wilderness training and/or survival skills. There is more to life than a time consuming hypnotic electronic gadget or device.

What's grinding? The Charleston is the last dance I learned.
