Lights Out

The power went out this morning. It was out throughout the entire park, maybe even some of the city. We were sitting at our computers, as usual, when our UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) started beeping at us about the lack of power. Jim went outside and determined that it wasn't just us, nobody had power.

If you've ever been in a power outage situation you know how astonishingly dependent we are on electricity. The advantage of an RV is that it's built to be self-sufficient. We just pushed the button to start up the generator, and we had power again. Yeah.

But the Wi-Fi was out - the Access Point equipment had lost power too. No problem, we have our own Internet with our satellite dish. I love our home! We felt pretty smug. :-)

Then the power came back on.
