Apocalypse Now

4 Days without power, so far, and no end in sight. Those responsible for restoring basic services have no plan for a single unseasonal storm. With the weather patterns becoming more unbalanced, what's going to happen with more of these freak storms? It's the 21st century, and we're living in the Third World.

Apart from the hundreds of dollars in food losses, we have need of power in our home for medical reasons. So it's been a tough time.

Abandoned buildings are ablaze with abundant power, but homes don't have it. Pretty whacked-out system, if it's this fragile. Our civilization hangs by a thread, and this one thing shows how vulnerable we are.

Welcome to the future, folks. Better teach your kids how to run a generator and live by lantern-light.
