Our electricity went out here yesterday

February 23, 2021 12:00am CST
I was working at the computer and watching something on the TV and all of a sudden it was pitch dark. I checked to see if someone fiddled with the electricity but no light in the hallway at all. After about half-hour or so it went back on and then off again and then stay off for about another half hour. I waited to see if came back on before I went to bed and it did. It was off for about an hour. It went off around 4 pm and came back on after 5 I think it was in the afternoon. I do not know if it was just our area or what.

@Tampa_girl7 13 hours is a lot and especially in winter when it is cold and you need the heat.

That's some kind of interruption. I hope it doesn't happen again.

Glad it finally came back on for you. I hate when that happens here because it is very dark. I did buy some battery operated lights though so next time the power goes out, I will have some kind of lighting to see around the whole house.

@stephcjh I also hate the dark. Thanks and I am so glad it came back on after a short time too. I have a flashlight but it was fine I could see in the dark. I like the idea of the battery-operated lights. That is very smart idea to get them and have then when the lights go out.

@Hannihar You are very welcome.I bought some of them from Ebay online and some of them from Amazon. You can get them from Walmart and other places too. They are bright and do the trick to give you lighting. I got tired of being in the dark, especially when it storms and the power goes out at times.

@stephcjh I live in Israel and no Walmart here and I do not like to order things online. Someone orders something for me online that is cheaper, but, aside from that other things if get online get here and someone helps me and orders them for me. Thanks but I will pass on that.

Maybe someone tripped the wire? It happens here too, but usually the electricity goes away for about 5-10 minutes. Or unless there is a schedules blackout.

@salimo Thank you for understanding. I cannot remember what I was watching on TV at the time but was working on the computer and could no longer do that and waited to see what was going to happen or if came back on while up. It did and was glad and just turned everything off.

It must be so frustrating when that happens. We haven't had any power cuts for years, thank goodness.

@JudyEv When it happens suddenly it is a problem and when it is either cold or hot and need something to warm you up or cool you down.

We've been having similar problems here too but I think our harsh winter has been the cause of power outages. At least your power wasn't off for too long. Hope it doesn't happen again.
