The power went out in my town recently, and I found the whole experience to be rather interesting, enlightening and cold.
When the power first went out, I did the only sensible thing I could do, which was to stare at my computer for a few minutes while I tried to figure out what was going on. Did my computer break? Was my work saved? Is this somehow my fault?
My wife and I are both currently working from home, so we were able to determine that the power went out in the house. Then we learned it was out all across the city. It was concerning to hear the power outage was so widespread, but a relief to know that I most likely would not be blamed.
