(From a man's point of view)
We had a power outage at our house this morning and my laptop, TV, DVD & my new surround sound music system were all shut down.
Then I discovered that my cell battery was flat and to top it off it was raining outside, so I couldn't play golf.
I went into the kitchen to make coffee and then I remembered that this also needs power, so I sat and talked with my wife for a few hours.
She seems like a nice person.
