What would we do without electricity

The power company turned off the electricity yesterday for a few hours and the place felt so different. The house was extremely quiet and one could hear every car, lawnmover, dog and even the birds on the telephone and electric wires keeping their normal racket that is usually muffled by the indoor sounds.

Obviously, there was no internet - can you imagine? Liked the quiet though but had to switch on a transitor radio to eliminate the annoying hum of a neighbour's lawnmower.
