Every one of us got a generator just to make sure that the people I was with and I could keep our A/C running after the fiasco the people I was with and I had last year when the power went out for so long, then every one of us had such a long power outage here in our neighborhood that no a single could even believe it.
There were men from the power business laboring around the clock, but everything was so messed up on the power grid that it ended up taking almost 2 whole weeks to get things up plus running again, meanwhile, most people in our entire neighborhood was suffering without electricity plus trying to learn to live without power for 2 whole weeks.
That included us! The worst section wasn’t being without cable or electric lights or sites to plug in our cellphones, though. The worst section wasn’t even the fact that the people I was with and I had to warm things up in the fireplace like some old west settlers! No, the worst section of the whole situation was the fact that the people I was with and I had to go without our central air conditioner for 2 whole weeks during the summer. I don’t know about you, but living without my air conditioner was literally like torture for those 2 weeks. I care about my A/C, plus anyone who knows me will tell you that I keep the temperature in my house at a frosty 67 degrees during the Summer months. So being without A/C because the people I was with and I had no power was honestly a big issue for us. By the end of that 2 week period, I had made the decision that the people I was with and I were going to be buying a generator for our house. I’m never going through all that again.
