Easier times

Remember when life used to be
a lot simpler? Like when we
lost power and we’d head toward
the basement with a flashlight
and a handful of fuses?

Today our son was out in the
garage playing with the mig
welder and tripped a circuit.
No problem we think.

Since we have circuit breakers,
all we have to do is grab a
flashlight, go to the basement,
and reset the breaker.

Welll….. That part was easy,
but then we had to reset all the
digital clocks, wait for the
satellite TV receivers to boot
back up, wait for the computer
to boot back up, and wait for
the wireless router to boot up.

It didn’t seem to hurt the
microwave, or the Bunn coffee
maker, the alarm system seems
to functioning, and everything
appears to be working again.

Could be time to rewire the
garage as we ran the feed wire
out in the late 1960’s. When
it was wired it wasn’t on a
separate breaker so it may be
time to change that also.

Nobody was hurt and after a
short break things were back
to working like they did
before the blackout.

We may not have had as many
modern conveniences back in the
day, but the stress level had
to be a lot lower when the
power went out.
Comments are always welcome.

  1. Superb blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any recommendations? Thanks!
