So in the last few weeks, various parts of Texas was hit with an incredible amount of storms and a lot of tornadoes and flooding hit the area. Luckily, my family's house only suffered power outages. It was then when I realized how attached to the internet and technology I really was. I coped much better than my sister since I'm good at entertaining myself with books and things that do not require a plug, battery, or Wi-Fi. But there's also the issue of refrigeration and freezing of perishable foods, lighting, heating, air conditioning, and, if you only have an electric-powered stove to cook with, cooking. Is it really important or necessary, do you think that we are so dependent on the presence of electricity in our modern culture? Only a little over a century ago, the most electricity anyone had in their home was limited to indoor lighting. If you had to go without electricity whatsoever, would you be able to function well?
