The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“When you’re used to having electricity and then all of a sudden it’s taken away, you’re basically just one step from being a wild animal.” – Jeff Kinney


  1. electricity is important, but clean running water is civilization. I can cope without electricity if I have to, but if there is no clean running water and sewage system electricity is not going to be that important.

  2. This is why I am happy to have a septic system. No electricity needed, just water and gravity. If the electricity goes out we can haul water to fill the toilet flush tanks. A bit of a pain, but way better than using an outhouse! I hope everyone has a few old type kerosene lamps and a 5-gallon container of kerosene. Used sparingly it will last for years.
