Winds knocked the power out this morning. Without power we couldn't even look up the telephone number to report the outage. Work pretty much came to a stop.
It occurred to me that emergency kits should come with jigsaw puzzles. Always something to do. Doesn't require power. Sure, you could read, but that's not very social. Next time there's a power outage I will make sure we have a jigsaw puzzle ready (not hard to do around here) and remember to eat the ice-cream before it melts. In the words of John Wooden, "failure to prepare is preparing for failure."
