During a horrible Winter time storm, my power went out.
This was wonderful sitting in the dark for a few hours, although I was not wonderful sitting without heat.
The snow was falling swiftly & the wind was blowing at least 10 miles per hour & it looked nasty outside. I called my parents & told them about my predicament, however neither of us knew what to do! With the weather being so bad, I couldn’t travel to their current home & they couldn’t come to mine. My only option was to ride out the storm in my heatless current home until it had cleared up enough to leave. This wasn’t my first Winter time storm, so I was a little prepared for the occasion. I had my flashlights ready & a battery powered gas furnace to keep me warm. The gas furnace wouldn’t run absolutely efficiently, however it would be enough to keep me hot if I needed to be. I decided to wait as long as possible before turning on my battery powered heater. After an hour or so, I caved & turned on the heater. I sat directly in front of it to guess the most heat. Once I was hot enough, I would turn off the heat & bundle myself under every blanket I owned. This cycle continued for hours. Once the storm stopped & the roads were cleared, I went to my parents current home to hot up. They had a gas gas furnace, which meant their current home was absolutely hot & cozy.
