I love getting snowed in. I love power outages. I love things that are out of the ordinary. It breaks up our dependence on technology and forces us to slow down. It puts people closer together. Perfect strangers help each other dig their cars out of snowbanks; they part, wishing each other the best of safe travels. Family sit around in the dark with candles, telling stories or playing acoustic instruments. For a moment, time stands still and you have to think about everything that you do on a daily basis. Ordinary is even better when interrupted occasionally. I like it.
