Many people don’t realize how precious some of their commodities are until they lose them. Simple things like having fresh water, air conditioning, and electricity are taken for granted until we lose them. Luckily, we have strong sources for these things, so incidents where we lose them don’t happen very often. However, when they do, it can be incredibly inconvenient. Losing electricity usually means losing the ability to flush your toilet, access hot water, and even prepare a simple meal.
