Have you ever been without electricity?  Each of us has probably experienced a power outage or two in our lives.  Most power outages are temporary, lasting from a few minutes to a few hours.

Personally I never think too much about the power companies or whether there will be electricity when I flip the light switch.  At least until there isn’t any. 

Then it happened…a huge storm called Hurricane Ike.  It wasn’t just a few minutes or even a few hours, not just a day or two.  It was a personal record…not one I care to repeat or even beat.  We were 13 days without electricity!

What’s the longest you have gone without electricity?
