On Day 1 of No Electric, one tends to stand about, thinking thoughtful thoughts.  Day 2:  frantically moving freezer contents to all the homes of your friends.  Day 3:  driving long distances to get a friend’s generator (and shopping along the way, to make good use of the gas and the opportunity of leaving your small home town).  Day 4:  ah, rest at last?  Well…it takes a lot of time to chat with the good friends who let you use their shower, and the good friends who let you do such n such, and the good friends who do such n such.  And run the generator, dashing about getting jobs done while you’ve got a light.  And figuring out what to have for a microwavable supper, since all your food is in someone else’s freezer.

It’s all been quite interesting and a little bit fun.
