What If …

My Internet has been down for a week … until this afternoon. I felt completely lost. No way to communicate except through my cellphone. Pretty much incommunicado.

I was reminded of a novel series from many years ago written by Terri Blackstock where some catastrophic disaster knocked out everything electrical around the world. Without any power, planes came crashing down through the air. Cars no longer worked. Houses lost electrical power.
