A hurricane passed over my town last week, & the two of us are still waiting for someone to get the power turned back on. This whole experience has been pretty difficult because I now know how dependent I am on electricity. The two of us have lost a lot of food because the refrigerator hasn’t been on, & the two of us have been pretty hot because the two of us are not able to turn on our air conditioning. All you’re able to do right now is open the windows to let some cool air circulate inside of the house. I never realized how dependent I was on my Heating, Ventilation & A/C system until I wasn’t able to turn it on. The cooling system can genuinely change how comfortable a home is, & I hope that I never have to go without my air conditioning after the power is finally turned back on. Hurricane season is a serious thing. There is a lot of preparation that goes into getting ready for one of these storms. This is the strongest one that I have ever dealt with, & I am cheerful to recognize that my family is all safe & that my home is still in good shape. Aside from having to scrub up our yard from all the limbs & debris, there will not be a lot of damage for us. The two of us are fortunate because there are places on the beach that are dealing with some extreme flooding problems. If an air conditioning is the worst of my concerns, then I consider myself fortunate. It could have been terrible.
