It just occurred to me what it would look like to see the power go out everywhere from space.
Realizing how many lives would be affected it would be pretty disturbing, yet beautiful to see the night side of Earth in it's natural state.
I was trying to figure out what Aton WIlliams was wearing?
Looked like a 100 lb test guitar strap. lol.
His advice was sound if beyond cursory - food , water - get some!
FOX viewers will die by the millions if they're relying on that network for survival information.
That whole excuse about how "every system can be brought down because it's online"

You'd see a picture like this:
But with patches everywhere just going off one by one.
I've experienced several city wide power failures and rolling brown-outs. The first was the year of discontent in the 1970's, when we lived in the
top floor of an apartment block. Mum was about to make me some hot chocolate. I had this giant bar of hot chocolate squares in my hand when suddenly
everything we see just rapidly fades to black like the tail end of a camera flash. A few second later we've adjusted to the darkness and stumble
around. We find a torch, but can't really go anywhere because the staircase is pitch black. We now had no cooker, electricty, lighting, or heating.
Fortunately, it was fifteen minutes later, Dad came home. He had an old camping stove and mini gas cylinder. That was enough for us to have a hot meal
that night. It wasn't until the next day we had electricity again. The view from the window was just a black silhouette of all the buildings against
a twilight blue sky with a few stars.
The second time was during a snow storm. Four of us were watching TV on a Saturday night when suddenly everything goes off. Room lights, electric bar
fire (the bars slowly faded from red to black), the TV goes from a
picture to a line and a bright dot and that white noise sound before going silent. No sound of the refrigerator. Just complete darkness and silence
until we find an old car accident lamp. Then we hear footsteps coming from the outside staircase. Our upstairs neighbors have a torch and ask us if we
have any problems with the electricity?
Outside, there was six inches of snow with the occasional car gliding silently through the snow. The car headlights would create these really ghostly
shadows that would flit across the houses across the road.
Being in a supermarket during a power failure was even scarier. All the lights go out, and then all the customers in the aisles are ordered to leave
the store. Store staff are walking around with torches just to make sure nobody steals anything. We waited forty-five minutes for power to return, it
didn't, so I called the utility company to make a complaint and within five minutes the power is back on.
