    Conrado's Bio:
    Born and raised in urban Madrid, lived in rural northern California and ended up in snowy suburban Minnesota. During the school year you'll find me firmly entrenched in a routine designed to develop my Psychology research skills, and during the summer you will probably not find me at all; in my free time, I enjoy going on trekking trips in the backcountry, adventuring through recondite countries and most importantly spending time with my family.

Power Outage

Today the power went off during my Field Biology class. We were inside reviewing the procedure of a new field trip we are planning for Wednesday (and hiding from the tempest that was happening outside), when everything went dark. We received messages from the school confirming that the power was out in the whole area, and it wouldn’t be back up until 3:30-4pm (2 hours from now), and informing us that campus was closed until the power came back on.

This is the first time this has happened in the 3 years I’ve been here, and it wasn’t until the wifi ran out (I don’t have a cell phone plan, so I was totally disconnected from the outside world) that I was reminded how disconnected we are from the real world. The entire class stoped. We finished off what we could, but without the computer, the presentation was over. Without lights, I realized how dimly lit and depressing large mansions and castles must’ve been before electricity became technologically available. Unable to text, I was reminded how large the world is; to communicate with someone who is on campus, I would’ve had to walk about 10 minutes (assuming I knew where they were), to communicate with someone in the cities I’d need to send a letter that could take several days to get there and another several days to get back–and to hear from someone in a different continent (home)… well, no point in going there.¬†

Good thing Minnesota is very well prepared for these kinds of events and the issue was solved within a couple of hours!
