And the Lights Went Out

Hope you didn’t lose your rent money betting on the Super Bowl.

If you were watching you know that soon after the 3rd quarter started the lights went out in the New Orleans Super Dome. I can’t imagine what it was like being in a dark room with 60,000+ people.

It took about a half-hour to restore power and bring the lights up to bright enough to continue the game. It was interesting watching some of the coaches yelling at NFL officials to do something about an issue they were essentially powerless to change.

It was also interesting to note that the immediate reaction among the group of people who had gathered at my house to watch the game. Folks looked around and wondered…terrorism?

We live in interesting times.

We also live in times in which no matter what you do, no matter what precautions you take…something can go wrong that throws your entire plan out the window. You can’t be ready for everything, but you can have an attitude of readiness just in case.
