Off the Grid

I am surrounded by huge towering massive trees. Sometimes one comes down. Like a killer extinction event asteroid, it's inevitable, you know it's going to happen, you just never know when or where.

Sunday with all the high winds a super massive tree came down in our backyard. Actually two, the super massive tree brought down another tree, but just a really big one. Along with the second tree came our power, internet, and phone lines.

Being without power or communication for two days eliminated about 94% of the things I do on a daily basis. It makes you appreciate how good we have it. Also it reminds you that people actually Lived and Walked the Earth long before there were things like phones, internet, furnaces, refrigerators, stoves, coffee makers, TV's, lights, electric guitars, hot water, microwaves, margarita makers, ect.
