    There is a power outage in my part of town in Tampa. Fuck, I was trying to get some stuff for work done but the remote access is down because of the outage. Plus the air conditioning is out and it is starting to get HOT in my house. So, not much else to do but make some cocktails and try to stay cool.

    What do y'all do when the power goes out?

    Go outside, walk around, maybe jog a bit...anything to heat myself up even more. Then I'll go sit on the porch and let my body cool down. You can get down right cold in 90 degree weather if you heat your body up enough then cool down.

    We have one in the shed but not a window ac unit. Man it is getting HOT. Probably take a cold shower to try to cool off, then a sleeping pill and just try to get to sleep.

    Hope you kept that vodka in the freezer and it was icy cold!

    Hmm - that's a thought. Might try it if I'm too hot to sleep.

    The standby generator kicks in. I have broadband cell, cable, and telephone based internet. But sometimes those do go down if we've had a tornado strike near.

    Put all of your clothes in the freezer. Then take them out in rotation and put them on to stay cool.

    In Honolulu we don't need air conditioning. The gentle Trade Winds blow a cool mist over the Ko'olau Mountains and out through Manoa Valley. But if you live Makaha side...Ho! It's hot enough to fry one bi bim bap on!

    180 degrees the opposite here. Power goes out it's because of a proper winter winter storm and I light a fire in the wood stoves if not they are not going already, crack a home brew. and sit back and watch the storm. In July and August, if the power goes out, I guess I will have out on the screen porch, had a couple double Tanquery tonics and smoke a cigar. Happily the AC has only gone out 2x in the 10 years I have been here. There is a main line going from Bonneville Dam (no kidding) to the step down transformer at my place. If I do loose power the County PUD shows up asap and I am back with power in hours.
