In any case, when I walked through our front door, the residual coolness from the air conditioning left the house still somewhat comfortable.
Occasionally, it’s easy for me to forget how much I rely on air conditioning to get a good night’s rest, however, leave it to some complication or another that prevents me from using our air conditioning to remind me all over again how sparse it is to me! In our area, way down south, there are 2 kinds of weather that are synonymous with summer: blazing heat plus excessive humidity plus afternoon plus night thunderstorms! There are spans of time throughout the Summer where there is at least one thunderstorm in the afternoon or early night, however last week, one storm in particular that was rather violent plus had a lot of lightning striking around town managed to take out a transformer near our home, but apparently, it happened just a few minutes before I pulled into our drivewayâ€¦ In fact, I believe I remember hearing a particularly loud lightning strike that truly was the one that did the transformer in. In any case, when I walked through our front door, the residual coolness from the air conditioning left the house still somewhat comfortable. This did not last, plus before long, our house was quite hot, but some other aspects of a power outage are no large deal to me. I have a portable butane stove for just such chances to cook our meals. I also use them as an opportunity to catch up on learning by candlelight. However, I simply could not sleep that night because of the heat plus humidity in our room, then power returned that afternoon, before I came back from work, but even one awful night’s rest means a miserable next afternoon!
