A journey outside can be rewarding, too. Ever seen the International Space Station traverse the western sky through Orion just before dawn? Or appreciated how incredible Venus or Mars look in the east each morning? Cosmic sights may have been obscured by light pollution prior to the winter blackout. Take advantage of the opportunity.
After the Winter Blackout
* Hindsight is 20/20. Make a list of everything that went well. Then make one of the things that did not. Update emergency plans accordingly.
* Appreciate the fact it’s over. As stated before, survival is a state of mind. Getting through a winter blackout provides a frame of reference for other events. If a winter blackout can be managed, other emergencies may seem less potent.
