This past Tuesday was marked by over thirty tornadoes confirmed on the ground in our area. While there was a remarkable lack of direct damage from these storms they did result in a complete power outage for the surrounding cities lasting, for us at least, until earlier this afternoon.
These events have forced me into a reluctant conclusion: I am addicted to technology. These last two days without electricity have been miserable, and I have no wish to repeat them. Unfortunately I may have no choice as the weather forecast shows many more such storm heading our way over the next few days.
We can send men to the moon but it seems burying our power lines underground is beyond us.
