Charging Yoga

Funky but effective. Many early Capitol Hill houses looked like this one.

An unprecedented summer failure of the neighborhood electrical supply left me grateful to have a cell phone and pad that were nearly fully charged. Someone involved in a recent televised disaster mention how important it is to keep devices at the ready.

The power was out for six hours, long enough for me to appreciate the reserve of AA batteries that I can recharge with hiker’s folding solar panels, wall juice, or a hand-ground generator. The in-house geek is now eager to scout the Great Big Hiking Co-op’s collection of thermo-electric wood stoves and solar boom boxes.

Options are good.
