The lights were out for almost a week when the last large snowstorm went through our area.
I hated when the lights went out for so long.
I guess it is the worst thing that can happen when you live alone. There is no a single to turn to who will tell you that everything is okay. When the lights went out during the last storm, my emergency lighting didn’t turn on. The generator wasn’t working as well as that meant my essential appliances would not work either. I had no heating without the electricity to keep it running. I was sitting in the new home with a blanket wrapped around me. I couldn’t charge my phone to find out when the power would come on. I couldn’t get the news without the generator. I had to call someone, however my phone was dead. I sat in the new home wrapped up in blankets as well as just relaxed. When sunshine came, I knew I would think so much better. I could see what was outside as well as hopefully I would be able to get outside as well as work on the generator. I had no method what to look for in the generator, although I was a lady for Pete’s sake. I bundled up in my blankets, as well as pretended I was in bed with the furnace running to keep myself and others warm. I was able to sleep the entire night. When I woke up, I was able to get outside. My acquaintance was cleaning off her sidewalk as well as she offered myself and others her phone to use. I called the Heating as well as Air Conditioning corporation as well as asked them if they would send out someone to work on my generator.
