First of all, thank God that it was not winter! Also it was more of single family outage, the rest of the world had electricity and was functioning normally. So your experience was quiet isolated and manageable. Yet this experience was a learning in life. In our village which I use to visit during summer vacation, we did not have electricity and I hated that. Also other than light there was nothing that depend on electricity. So darkness did bother but was not limiting in the modern sense.
