It was only a few weeks ago when the two of us have experienced a severe thunderstorm, but the youngsters were so afraid of the thunder, they all came running into our bedroom to try to get some sleep, then eventually the power was shut off, however along with the power went the Heating and Air Conditioning system of course so the air quality got really bad.
There was a lot of rain plus I was stressed out that my basement was going to flood separate from being able to use our sump pump.
Later on when the rain subsided though, thankfully. The sad thing is, the two of us didn’t have power for the entire following afternoon… It was hard trying to do anything in our home separate from any power so the two of us went out to the movie theatre and the two of us made the decision to go to dinner afterwards. It was nice to feel the powerful air conditioning at the movie theatre and the diner the two of us made the decision to go to was really nice as well with superb air quality. The people I was with and I were hoping that by the time we got back home, the power would be back on. Sure enough when the two of us got back, everything was finally working just fantastic which was great. I am not sure why it took so long for them to get the power back on, but it was so nice that it was back because the two of us could use our air conditioning again. The air quality was nice again plus I was thinking about ways to avoid this situation in the future. I ended up with a nice backup generator. I figured with this thing, the two of us could run the Heating and Air Conditioning and the sump pump if the power failed yet again.
