Due to the snow, I decided to do my neighborhood walk exercise on the street in front of my apartment, and since I did not have power even on my cell phone, I knocked on a door across street  That's how I met the master neighbours from across the street, who invited me to dine with them.  While dining we all agreed on the quality of the exquisite silence.  We agreed that the absence of so many cell phones waves was quite noticeable.  We also felt this was quite an opportunity to review our own preparedness.  Personally, I was quite unprepared (no radio, batteries, candles, etc.).  I'll be looking forward to the next MC2020.  Thank you
