Letter: Power Outage

Ann Murphy writes:
I had just got back from Kroger, and my electric kept flickering, on and off. It did this, several times, then went out, and stayed out. I stumbled around, trying to find my phone, to use the flashlight. I couldn't find it. My furbabies kept whining and didn't know what was going on. It seemed like forever, when the power finally came back on. It was off about 20 minutes. Had to go around setting the clocks, on my coffee maker, microwave and stove.

We just don't understand how valuable electricity is until it goes out, even for a short time.
