The power went out at my house somewhere around 4:30 pm. It came back on around 8 pm. While I left the house around 6, power outages like this puts things into perspective and makes me appreciate electricity more. With the triple digit temperatures, being able to turn on fans and the air conditioner has made life more enjoyable. Dealing with a power outage in this hot weather is difficult; I could survive it happening in the winter more easily.
