The lights were out for almost a month when the last giant 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 1 to turn to who will tell you that everything is okay. When the lights went out while in the last storm, my emergency lighting didn’t turn on. The generator wasn’t working plus that meant my essential appliances would not work either. I had no heating without the electricity to keep it running. I was resting in the 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 home wrapped up in blankets plus just relaxed. When morninglight came, I knew I would recognize so much better. I could see what was outside plus hopefully I would be able to get outside plus work on the generator. I had no method what to look for in the generator, however I was a guy for Pete’s sake. I bundled up in my blankets, plus pretended I was in bed with the furnace running to keep me warm. I was able to sleep the entire evening. When I woke up, I was able to get outside. My friend was cleaning off his sidewalk plus he provided me his phone to use. I called the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C company plus asked them if they would send out someone to work on my generator.
