Power Outage


This week has been a week of power outages. We experience power outage almost every day. The outage lasts as long as 6 hours. I am glad I have a laptop for I can use it for a couple of minutes even if we don't have the electricity. The power outage has become annoying because it last long and I could not do the usual things. Andrea does not like total darkness. She gets scared of it. I am glad we stocked up on scented candles. It becomes very handy these days.

Few days ago, I was in the middle of cooking our dinner when the power went out. Of course, I don't have a choice but to throw it away because I was in the middle of making a beef pasta and the power was out for 6 hours. We were afraid it is no longer safe to continue cooking it. We end up having McDonald's dinner that night.

Two night ago, we were about to watch a movie when the power went out. I felt so grrr. We always look forward to our movie nights. We had to wait until midnight before we were able to watch the movie.

I bet that people are using Diesel Generators during power outages. I think we need to buy one for ourselves. It seems like it is good investment. A Towable Diesel Generators will be the type that would fit our needs because we have limited space inside our place. We will definitely look for a Diesel Generator this weekend in order to end my misery.

I've heard other friends of mine talk about power outages, too.

After reading this, I feel fortunate when I was kid because my dad worked at a place as an Engine Mechanic. They also sold generators which he was able to take home for free much of the time when the power was out for various reasons.

I think its a wise move to buy a generator especially as often as you experience outages.

Nice posting my friend!

If you are really thinking about getting a generator make sure that you NEVER, EVER use it inside - people are dying all the time from this - it produces Carbon Monoxide which is odorless and kills very quickly. I just saw a story from here in Norfolk were 3 family members died because they were using a generator in their house.

Lu, those power outages reminded me of my vacation in the Philippines. Everyday at a particular time, the electricity was down.

When it happens here in Montreal, I usually call the hydro electric company and they would inform me of the cause and when is the approximate time it will come back.

But that's a bummer when it's out in the middle of cooking your meals.
