Spring and summer months are filled with lots of rain and sunshine. Sometimes it will rain all day and the sun still shines. I don’t mind the rain much at all. The temperatures drop when the rain comes and it is a nice break from the heat. A few months ago we had a terrible storm that knocked out the power. I was hoping the power would be turned back on the next morning, but there was a great deal of damage from the storm. Several trees came down in the heavy winds and the branches caused several power lines to be damaged. The power was out the entire next day. I tried to use the generator so I could run that air conditioner. It was 90 degrees that day and none of my neighbors and I had any way to control the indoor temperature. The generator had trouble keeping up with the demand, so I had to shut off the air conditioner. I needed to keep the refrigerator and the freezer cold. With the air conditioner running, there was a strain on the generator. I sat with my neighbor later that afternoon. He has a much larger generator than I do and it worked well. He had the ability to keep the indoor temperature comfortable while still keeping the refrigerator and freezer ice cold. I was happy when the power finally came back on later that evening. I did not want to spend another night trying to sleep without any way to control the indoor temperature. I can’t sleep well when it’s warm indoors.
