I thought i was gonna come back right after breakfast and therapy but an old friend and one of my favorite ex boyfriends video called me. I think he's brokenhearted. Anyway, after chatting for hours, i decided to take a bath first then start mylotting but unfortunately there came power and water outages. I was a very unhappy person the whole day. I was like in an oven for about 4hrs. I just took a bath but i'm still lazy and sleepy.I think I'm going to take care of my notifications and be with you for real tomorrow.

@MGjhaud,I can understand the trouble you are undergoing now.Fortunately we in this small town in India rarely face the problem of power and water shortage.We have a good power and water supply.

It must have been because of the power curtailment and the climate. The temperature these days caused the reduction of water and power supply

Power and water outages, I hate that. We usually experience that here. What I really hate about is that they won't give you a notice prior so you can at least prepare.

Do you live near a mall? You sure can enjoy air-conditioning in the mall. Most public places have backup generators that produce electricity.

That's awful. We often have power outages, but not having water is a lot worse.

the water tanks are powered by electricity so whenever we dont have power, we dont get water too. its really awful especially when we're not prepared.

Wow that's really terrible. Fortunately, we don't experience power outages often, and when we do, I have a gen set power back up for that.

We don't have water outages in our area but we have power outages almost once a month and usually it lasts for 8 to 12 hours. Sometimes they still extend it for two more hours.

We are fortunate because power outage comes once in a blue moon and water interruption is not always.

I can relate you on that, when we have power outage, we have also water outage. Good if it is on rainy days but in hot summer days? My God, it is annoying to have that 2.

There has been a lot of power outages today. There was one North of me and another myLot member had her power out too. Now you experienced that also and no water at the same time? I'm glad its back and running for you now though and you got to take a bath.

We haven't had a power outage for a while. I don't think that we have ever had a "water outage".
