This past week, there was a windstorm in our area. This is fairly uncommon. While all of us experience a lot of frosty weather plus snow, all of us are not an section that is recognizably known for strong winds. The wind was moving at about 68 mph in some locales, which caused many businesses, homes, plus streets to lose power. The stop lights on our street were out of power, so traffic was slowed down, even the local grocery store had to close down because it was out of power. Normally, I don’t mind losing power. I guess it’s kind of fun to stand by candlelight, disconnect from technology, plus learn a book or play a game of cards. However, given that it was the middle of the winter, this got seasoned certainly hastily. After a few tenths, all of us began to feel the impact of losing the heat. The temperature was dropping hastily, plus all of us didn’t have a whole lot of options. Growing up, our family beach home had a fireplace. Whenever all of us lost power, our Mom would just grab some logs plus heat the home the seasoned fashioned way. Unfortunately for me, I no longer live in a home with a fireplace. Even if I did, I’m not sure I would guess where to start when it comes to using it as a source of heat. Since the wind caused power outages all over the area, it took time for the power companies to come repair our issue. We were without heat for about many days. By the time the power turned back on, our home was in the forties! Even though I spent those many days bundled up in blankets plus layers, I ended up catching a nasty cold. We legitimately take the luxury of heating plus cooling for granted.
