Lately, we have been getting nothing but thunderstorms.
Seriously, I don’t think I have ever experienced so many thunderstorms in such a short period of time.
We are getting tornado warnings and flood warnings left and right. Fortunately during the whole time we have lived in our new home, we have never experienced a power outage, even with all these crazy storms. We did have lightning strike the neighbor’s tree though. I was just thankful it wasn’t the actual power lines because that would have been stressful to deal with. When the power goes out, you can’t use your HVAC system any longer. I couldn’t imagine having to deal with these crazy thunderstorms and downpours without a working HVAC system. We have a ductless mini split and the system easily pours the humidity out of the house through the condensate lines. If we had to deal with all that humidity in the house, I think we would be dealing with dangerous levels. It can be hard to breathe sometimes when you’re outside because of the overwhelming amount of humidity. Of course, we have been just fine. The only problem we actually experience often is having the internet go out. It seems like everytime the lighting strikes somewhere, the internet goes out. I mean again, I’m really glad it’s not the power going out, but it kind of is annoying when the internet goes out like crazy during these intense thunderstorms. They really shake and rattle the ground, and the kids get really scared. I tell everyone that it will be okay, but I never know for sure how things will go. I just pray a tornado doesn’t destroy our home.
