Struck with the reality of the infrastructure failing on 4th of July. Was going to meet up with friend on the 4th to watch the fireworks downtown and listen the the blues festival. There was no cell phone service available at that event, even though I had 4 bars of signal strength! No voice, no texts. I was surprised that even texts couldn't get in or out. So, I never met up because we couldn't communicate. Just imagine a disaster when even more people would be trying to use their phones.
