Writing Prompt: Shutdown!

Writing prompt Thursday morning I hiked my favorite mountain. When I arrived at the parking lot at the base of the mountain, I was surprised to discover that the toll collection booth was shut down, and I didn't have to pay. Why? Because of the government shut down!

We all get used to things working a certain way, and are surprised when things change. Imagine that something you have always depended on suddenly shut down. Write about the experience.
