I found out that I was not the only one who would be affected by a nation-wide blackout. Sure, my goods and services depend on devices that run on electricity, but a blackout that lasts at least a few days would affect everybody. That made sense because just about everybody uses electrical devices, especially at work, these days. My dependence just happens to run deeper than most others’.
Still, this blackout and subsequent consideration on its effects on my life was healthy and revealing.
