    So much electrical and electronic gadgets around, how people are going to switch off every time when it is thundering, watch out for lightning before thunder, that is the time to switch off! Try to live a life of simplicity without much electrical appliances, it is good for paying bills also. If you are hooked up with modern gadgets you may forget to keep alternatives ready. Oil lamps, fire wood stoves, mortar and pestle.
