Quoting eKnuckles:" So if you have seen the show revolution, you will know what I am getting at. Say electricity disappears ... [snip!] ... screwed from being so dependent on 'the system'? Do you think there would be good that could come from it? Or only negatives?"
It would be like camping. Might be pretty cold, but we have plenty to be bundled up. We have kerosene heaters and some of those camping stoves. Water would probably be bad, so I would assume that boiling it would help...I'm not sure.
It would be boring as all hell. I went two weeks without power from a hurricane, and I thought I was going to die from lack of entertainment!
