I basically live in a neighborhood that is prone to severely annoying power outages.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that we have intense weather that is often taking down power lines.
The true nature of the problem is, we don’t need horrible climate events to take down our power grid system. This is because we have a great deal of immense trees in the city. It’s a relatively strange mixture of urban infrastructure and large, outdated forests together. This causes all sorts of concerns. It is not odd for immense branches to come crashing down to take out the power lines. Of course, the other day, I came back to my place and found that the property was looking completely dark and quiet. We actually lost power once again while I was gone. I was upset, as this meant there was actually no central air conditioner working in the home. Of course, it was a 95 degree day during the summer months. The air was terribly hot and muggy, and the indoor air somehow felt worse than outside. I could not see a single thing in the sweltering place without lights, so I decided to get some tea light candles going and started lighting them in every room that I needed to utilize. It looked pretty beautiful, but it wasn’t too long before I noticed that the indoor air temperature was climbing at an alarming rate. I realized, with dire dissatisfaction, that my tea light candles were a problem. There entirely was too much heat coming from these candles without an A/C actually working to offset the heat. It felt basically like I had started up a fireplace, rather than a few tea light candles without my central A/C equipment.
