Power outages like just now!

Post by Who2 »

It’s another power out, these will become more numerous due the increased wealth and the lack of infrastructure to provide said supply.
Personally, I quite enjoy them, it puts one in-touch with one and one's mortality,
there is a ‘stillness & peace abundant and a feeling of being ‘eau natural.
When I first came here I started to plan for these government power outages, it makes sense, well to me it did & still does.
In the early days I had all the stuff, converters, solar panels, 12v Music systems, water storage ect.
They continue as of now as I write this from my ‘back-up system.
So as our Scoutmaster constantly remarked, “Be Prepared” if not? 'Well ****-off & die 'Do I really give a sh*t ? ‘No I do not!

If one hasn’t sorted out one’s life, it’s expectations and situations by now

“Well my friends, “You will always be grain rather than the Miller"...8)

They are fine, to produce electricity but if the infrastructure beyond the power stations is weak, they can produce what they want, when the infrastructure breaks down through lack of maintenance the cuts will continue.
