My brother and I collaborated on a Preparedness Checklist over the weekend. We used a simple but very functional web tool called Writeboards, which are free and fun to use.
Then this morning, after a stormy night the power went out across Auckland. Some areas were out for a big chunk of the day. It was a reminder of how much we rely on electricity and a prompt to get a few things together to make life easier if the power goes out more often as we enter into a low-energy future.
I suspect the transition may not be smooth and graceful.
