Genesis 1:5 - And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Imagine if you will, a world in which electric light and power had ceased to exist. You wouldn't be reading this right now for one. I wouldn't be writing this right now (well, your now is my then...or something like that).
We'd be spending a great deal of our time at the lower end of Maslow's hierarchy of needs - securing food, water and shelter. No more zipping through the drive-through for kids' meals when you are running late, and you probably would be running because none of the computers in today's cars would work.
Also, I wouldn't be here for another reason. I nearly died during the delivery of my first child. I saw a video of me the day after the delivery and I looked like the Michelin Man's Mama. (At the time, DS1 looked like a little conehead.)
It just occurred to me that someone could write a book entitled "14,000 Things Ways Your Life Would Change Without Electricity". Although they would have to do it before the electricity runs out because otherwise there would probably only be one copy (due to all the handwriting) and it would cost a boatload full of money.)
So, tell me, what would YOU miss the most? Share in the comments!
