I am originally from the Philippines so I am used to brownouts. It was 5 o’clock when our electricity went off. The rain was pouring hard. The thunder and lightning exchanges back and forth and it is quite scary for me. My husband checked on his iPhone about power outages and our area is on the list. This is my first time to have a real storm since we moved to Arkansas. Let alone the electricity being off for so long. I realized we can’t cook any food or warm food on the stove. I am also worried on my shrimp that’s inside the freezer. I still have 4 packages of shrimp and I don’t want it to end up in the thrash can. Buying shrimp cost $4.99 per pound and it is difficult to find the fresh ones. Then our car is inside the garage. I don’t think we can open it without pressing the garage opener so we can buy our food out. Luckily, the electricity is back now.
