  1. I didn’t have electric for over an hour. I read some of Mount Harmon Diaries by Sidney George Fisher when he lived there in the Earleville area and I looked at Baltimore A Portrait from 2002.
    So it wasn’t too bad to be without tv.

  2. Bill: Lots of people in Cecil Co. discovered life
    off the grid.
