Boy Scouts use “be prepared” as their motto and it is a good one, along with my personal favorite “prepare for the worst and hope for the best”. But are we really prepared? Recently we had a power outage here at my office and slowly my coworkers and I came to realize how much we rely on power to fuel our daily activities. Simple things, like having a light in the bathroom and a microwave to heat up your lunch are luxuries we surely do take for granted. We ended up closing early that day because all of our work relies on power of some kind. It makes you think what would happen if it was more than just a simple power outage. Are you prepared for an event that could alter our lives in such a way that we would need to rethink the way we do the things we don’t usually think about doing?
