The lights were flickering, and I knew we would lose power.

During the summer time we often have pop-up thunderstorms in our area.

The heat and humidity combined, and it is the perfect situation for pop-up thunderstorms and/or tornado watches.

For two hours, our lights were flickering, and I knew we would eventually lose power. The temperature was in the 90s, and if we lost power, we would have no air conditioning. My hubby had not had our generator repair earlier this summer, and she was half afraid to use it. At the end of last summer, the generator was sputtering and doing gas out, which was not a great thing, however luckily, we did not need to use the generator all last summer. This summer time was going to be different. We had already lost power twice, however it came on within an hour and we did not really miss the air conditioning unit. If our power when out on this day, it would entirely be out the entire evening. Not only would we have to go without air conditioning, however my hubby’s oxygen and BiPAP would not be working. I was worrying more about him with her oxygen BiPAP, then I was about my asthma and not having air conditioning. At the first sign of power being offer more than an hour, my hubby called a hotel that was within a few miles of home. When they told him they only had one vacant room, she told him to save it and we would be there within an hour. We packed up her CPAP and portable oxygen, and headed to the hotel, hoping their air conditioning would continue working.
