Recipe No. 4 – How To Get Through a Power Outage in the Middle of a Summer Day.

Step One: Get naked. The A/C won’t be working for a while, so it is best to take precautions.

Step Two: Eat food before it spoils. Start with the freezer – ice cream or popsicles are first in this crisis.

Step Three: Divvy up your time with your most-charged devices. Save your cell phone for last – you never know when you might need to phone a friend (or answer a call) for that tricky Who Wants To Be A Millionaire question.

Step Four: Still no power? Take a nap and pray 🙏 that your devices will be re-charged again in the convenience of your own home rather than at some random Starbucks outside of the zone of affected power-outage customers.

CONGRATULATIONS! 👏 YOU MADE IT THROUGH A 1ST WORLD CRISIS. 😱

*Inspired by yet another no A/C situation at my job today. Almost the 3rd power outage of some kind at my job/home this summer. I stand by this recipe. It is utterly complaint-proof.
