When this computer shutdown improperly, Mozilla loses its history in the address bar. Somewhat annoying. As the last parts of the blackout fades away.
The blackout was interesting. Most people here got their electricity back on Friday evening or night. Considering that Orthodox Jews will not use electricity on the Sabbath (that is will no turn on the switch, but will enjoy the light if turned on before the Sabbath) it was very interesting. Hot food was had by those who had (neighbors with) gas ovens or people who went out of town. Air-conditioning was mostly had by those who left it on. Who knew which lights to leave on without seeing them come on when hitting the switch? I didn't even think about that. And so on.
Most interestingly, this is the third electric outage we've had recently. So far two storms took us out and now this. I just wonder how our electric system can be this vulnerable. Every time a wind blows i wonder when the flickering will happen. And those places who were lucky enough to have coal plants, had electricity almost immediately. I hope we go back to coal. Its much safer, more natural, and better overall for the environment than nuclear reactors.
There's gas and ice outlets that not many think about. And stores with ice-cream and no generators. With the outage less than fourty-eight hours, i was told the insurance won't cover it.
And the worst part of all. I was forced to read a *book*. What will happen next?
