The only thing worse than a hurricane in the middle of the summer season is losing power during the storm.
A hurricane brings extremely strong winds and a lot of rain.
It’s always hot and humid outside, even if it’s windy and raining. Last summer, my family and I endured a significant hurricane. The strong storm was off the coast and suddenly came on Shore at the last minute. Our neighborhood was hit hard by strong winds. One of those 75 mile per hour gas knocked down a power pole and we lost all of the power to our neighborhood. My wife and I don’t have a generator, so we had to spend 3 days without any power. The worst part about having the power out is not being able to run the air conditioner. The summer weather is extremely hot and humid and the air conditioner is the only thing that helps. My family and I were stuck inside of the house because of the storm and we were stuck without any AC. I tried to get the neighbor to let us steal some electricity from her generator, but she didn’t have enough gas to run the generator for days and days. We spent three entirely hot days without the air conditioner and that was plenty. After the storm was over, we went to the hardware store and found a generator big enough to run the refrigerator, the AC, and the range. We won’t have any issues with losing power next summer during hurricane season. We will be prepared for the worst of the weather.
