Electricity is a good thing, when it is harnessed by humans. We have electric light, electric heating, electric communication devices, electric freezers and so on. It helps making life quite easy.

In the early evening today, not long after sunset, all electric appliances in our home stopped functioning. The street lights and the lights in the windows of our neighbours went out as well.

Daniel started a fire, which gave us a little light in the living room. It was actually quite cozy there for a while. It was not long before the electricity came back, which we are grateful for. While it can be cozy and almost adventturous to be out of electricity for a little while, it also makes you think about how much we depend upon electricity in our daily lives. I would not want to be without it for any longer period that the one we had tonight. The control of electric power is a great thing, indeed.
