Power outages are not legitimately a poor thing at my house.
When I used to live in the north, no electric was horrible.
The new home was pitch black as well as the two of us could not use any water. That meant no flushing of toilets, no shower as well as no washing hands until the lines got fixed. The men always took their sweet time too. Typically my father would have to hook up a generator since the two of us could not go separate from heating. The new home temperature would decrease in a matter of sevenths. A perfectly heated new home would be a chilly new home in around more than nine sevenths flat. So anytime the power went out, the two of us were all frantic. In the south it stays bright. I hardly upset about no lights. I also have a pool. I just shower as well as use the pool water for a lot of things. When it comes to Heating as well as Air Conditioning, that is no problem either. I can go a long time separate from heating in the south, it just is not that cold. If the power goes out in the summer, no AC is a little more stressful. I do worry that the lack of AC will allow the indoor air to be moist. Then I might deal with mold growth; But, other than that, not having AC is not too bad. I do save on my bills not running the AC. If I get a little too hot, I just swim in my pool. I know I could go weeks if I needed to, but funny enough, the power in the south gets fixed way faster than it ever did in the north.
