snow connections

A few years ago we endured a power outage that stretched into a couple of days. Since then, I've been more aware of how much we're connected to the grid that includes power, telephone, cable for TV and the Internet, water, sewer, natural gas, and for some areas a secondary water system. Especially when the weather's very cold, or there's heavy snow and ice, I think of how fragile my connections can become. An then, of course, there's the movement to get off the grid.
