Seriously. Yesterday we woke up to a few inches of heavy, wet snow and no power. What to do? What to do? Given where I'm at in my mission to go paperless, I could have spent a good deal of time organizing what's left to scan and enter, but it got me thinking. When I am "completely" paperless, what will I do the next time a snow storm hits and I don't have internet access to work on my genealogy.
It seems to me like it's a good time to spend some time with my living family and make some memories with them. I like to point out to people that we, as genealogists, need to not get so caught up i tracking down our ancestors that we neglect our living relatives and descendants.
Do you have a "favorite" power outage activity? In our house, many of us pick up a book and read. Sometimes we play Monopoly when we suspect its going to be a while. What does your family do when you're disconnected from the grid? Have you recorded those special activities in your own family's history?
