My friend Jamie gave me his notebook that he began writing at the start of the “APF” period. Of course, it wasn’t called “After Power Failure” back then. Jamie never called it that, instead he referred to events as happening either “Before the Light Went Out” or “After the Lights Went Out”. I wasn’t born then, and while it’s not quite ancient history, it has been many decades since the World changed forever for Jamie and the people of his time. He was very good about writing notes and memories, and I hope you will enjoy these inside looks at history as much as I do. Jamie has helped to preserve the history of before APF for many of us and we should all thank him for it. RIP Sir…it was an honor knowing you and I shall never forget the amazing things you have taught me about life, death, and man’s resilience.
