It is Sunday evening as write this on my PDA, in total darkness. The power has been out for a couple of hours, so I've lit three candles to read by. Reading is about all you can do when you have no electricity, and it's kind of nice to be forced into this form of leisure at the close of the weekend. No email to check, no RSS feeds to catch up on, no news programs to watch. Just a good book and a warm jacket.
