I did a lot of my growing up in rural South Dakota, before the REC electrified the farms. Life on a farm without electricity is life similar to the Amish. We used gasoline implements, not horses though.
Electricity is rather easy to do without, if you don't require electric appliances. Propane burns without it, we also had propane-powered refrigeration. Lamps and candles provide light without electricity, the biggest benefit of electricity to everyday life is refrigeration for food preservation.
We did live off of home and commercial canning more so than today, and ice cream was a sometimes treat. With planning, iceboxes and lake ice can last a good while into the summer, and cool well water provides some of the amenities that hot and cold give to foods.
I don't watch TV (but do enjoy movies) and radio is a sometimes thing. Without electricity I'd have to give up the internet, but it wouldn't take long to "forget" it.
