A power outage and no a/c

Occasionally, it’s simple for me to forget how much I rely on a/c to get a great night’s rest; However, leave it to some problem or another that prevents me from using our a/c to remind me all over again how rare it is to me! In our area, way down south, there are many kinds of weather that are synonymous with summer: blazing heat as well as excessive humidity as well as day as well as night thunderstorms.

There are spans of time throughout the summer time where there is at least a single thunderstorm in the day or early night, however last week, a single storm in certain that was rather violent as well as had a lot of lightning striking around neighborhood managed to take out a transformer near our home.

Apparently, it happened just a few minutes before I pulled into our driveway. In fact, I guess I remember hearing a recognizably loud lightning strike that really was the a single that did the transformer in. In any case, when I walked through our front door, the residual coolness from the a/c left the home still somewhat comfortable. This did not last, as well as before long, our home was quite hot! Some other aspects of a power outage are no sizable deal to me. I have a portable butane stove for just such occasions to cook our meals. I also use them as an choice to catch up on studying by candlelight. However, I simply could not sleep that night because of the heat as well as humidity in our room. Power returned that day, before I came back from work, but even a single bad night’s rest means a angry next day!
