That's true, and I guess I'm lucky to live in a country with a good quality power grid. Our national power grid has a kind of redundancy built in (sort of dual rings of supply) so I only experience 1 power failure per year on average, and that is mainly caused by local ground workers hitting a power line (most of our powergrid is underground in populated areas) or a nearby transformer station blowing out.
