It is common where we live to experience a loss of electrical power several times per week. The longest so far has been 8 hours. We don’t intend on buying a generator because we live in a poor area and it would make us feel very uncomfortable having that equipment set up and only using it 8 – 10 hours per week. So, we’ll just have to make do. Everybody else around here is still alive, so I guess we can live through it as well.
So If you come to visit us, and there’s no power for your hair dryer (ladies), or the water pump, we can always go to well that is close by and get a few buckets for you : ^ )
