What do you do when the electricity goes out?

Recommended Posts

Not technically a black out but a brown out. Minimal electricity flowing to the house. Computers and TVs were down. 

So I grabbed some head phones, a cassette player, my Prewalski's ponies compilation album and went for a walk.

With power out (or internet down) and lockdown in effect... I took out a few board games so I could play them with family.

I may also have subverted Jenga to build, like, joined towers or office buildings or wavebreakers or bridges.

It doesn't happen here very often (thankfully), not counting when it goes out for a second or two. The last time it happened (a couple of weeks ago), I immediately took my flashlight so I could see something. Then I used my laptop, which had no internet connection, but I could at least listen to music I had saved and wasn't in complete darkness for the next 45 minutes. :coco:

It doesn't happen here that often, but whenever it does I just use my phone or just lay in bed and stare at the ceiling or wall.

I go outside, look at the dark sky with those little twinkinling lights, scream "what the f*** are those?!", then burn down society.

I have Internet on my cell phone now, so I can enjoy a very slow impossible to navigate forum when power goes out (so I will probably read a book instead) :wacko:

Used to be, I cursed the heavens and found a flashlight. Nowadays, it doesn’t really change anything.
