We are so wired, recently we have all had a small taste of just how important electricity is to our every day lives. On a normal day these are the things we take for granted and this is probably the short list.
Open the refrigerator
Electric can opener
Blow dry your hair
Curl your hair
Turn on a lamp
Electric Hot Water Heater
Take the kids to daycare if they are out of power too.
Watch TV (backup battery does not last forever)
Charge Phone in your house (could use charger in car if you have one)
No Traffic Signals
Pool Pump will not work
People with wells can't pump water up to use facilities and utilities
EGAD separation anxiety from the Internet and FACEBOOK!!
