My region is known for its thunderstorms.
From late March into early November, my section is bombarded with constant rain showers as well as serious thunderstorms. Both of us usually get hit the worst late in the days as the day slowly transforms into night. Although my apartment is at a high elevation, many of my neighbors within a half-mile radius are consistently at risk for flash floods when the people I was with and I get hit with enough rain. Since the winds are consistently strong as well, tree branches fall as well as cause damage to cars, roofs, roads, as well as powerlines. It’s harshly aggravating when I’m trying to labor on my iPad as well as the power goes out randomly while the people I was with and I were in a surprise thunderstorm. But, a single crucial complication is that our power seems to keep going in as well as out regardless of whether or not a powerline was physically damaged. The rain alone can spur a 2-hour power outage. Since it’s entirely sizzling in my region, the temperature in my apartment climbs with the cooling system off for long periods of time. I get uncomfortably covered in sweat as well as my apartment begins to odor after so long without constant air flow from the central HVAC system. Thankfully, I found an affordable storm generator that runs on gasoline as well as produces enough electricity to power my spare portable cooling system. I use this portable cooling system as a make-shift heating as well as cooling method whenever my central HVAC is down or being took care of. Even if I can’t get my iPad back on, I have peace of mind whenever there’s a power outage now because I consistently know that I will at least keep an cooling system running. It might not be a substitutement for a central cooling system, however it is surely better than nothing.
