What one modern convience can you not live without?

I would have to say running water. We have had frozen pipes for sevearl days now and they have finally thawed (I'm doing the happy dance). If we did not have plenty of snow outside (we've been melting it on the stove) we would have been really in trouble.

  • In door plumbing in general. I like not having the need for an outhouse and love the running water. I am happy that your pipes have thawed.

  • I cannot think of any that I could not live without. But there are plenty I prefer not to live without.
    Actually some of our best memories are doing without.
    Two weeks.without electricity becaue of the hurricane.
    Thanksgiving no electricity and making hotdogs in the fire place.
    going to the creek for a bath because the plumbing was being repaired.
    These are moments we will always remember.
    The secret is to look at the adversity with a smile.
