    We live in South Carolina and last week had the big winter storm of snow. It always amazes me how the hint of a snowflake and everyone rushes to the store for bread and milk and other things. If we happen to get snow, mostly they only last 2-3 days but people are not even that prepared! We have more ice than snow and power outages from that but again, people just don’t prepare when we are told it’s coming! Amazing to me!

    Please don’t piss away 15 minutes of the show just to tell us it was dark when you turned the lights out.

      I think that’s a little harsh. You either haven’t done your own grid down exercise to know what it’s like or are already accustomed to total darkness. Most people, especially in urban environments, are not used to complete and total darkness. It’s not about “ooo, lights went out and now it’s dark.” It’s about sharing the experiences.
