It is astonishing how fast a power outage undercuts about 99% of one's life. Completely yanks the rug out from under it and installs its own set of priorities.

- I better email--wait, can't do that--
- Well, I should apply for--wait, can't do that--
- I need to find that phone number to call--wait, can't do that--
- Okay, so I'll check the weather; wait, can't do that--
- Need to charge my cellphone; wait, can't do that--
- Need to get breakfast; wait, can't open fridge--
- Maybe I'll just make tea; wait, can't boil water--
- Better dry my hair; wait, can't do that--

...think I'll look for matches.
