A shut down can be an unexpected four letter word.

An unexpected power outage this evening caused all my computers and lights to shut down.

There is something eerily calm about a power outage, when the hum of the electronics vanishes and the air is still. When night falls, there is a pleasant darkness that you don't find, even when there are only one or two LEDs around.

Still, I was glad when the power returned.
