power outage …

Today’s prompt: How did you survive the power outage?

The San Gabriel Valley experienced some unusually high winds on Wendesday evening, which knocked down many trees and power lines leaving more than 135,000 people without electricity for a while. It was quite an experience to survive without electricity for a few days; the natural darkness around 5:30pm made me realize how messed up our circadian cycle must be because of all the artificial lighting we use throughout the night. It was also interesting not to depend on the computer for engagement; I found myself reading books and taking up small crafting projects.
