Back in 2017, my pal and I got hit by a major hurricane in Orlando! Hurricane Irma made landfall as a genre 4 storm with winds of around 130 miles per hour. Of course, the storm weakened over land so by the time it got to Orlando it was a genre 1 storm, but it still caused a lot of detriment, my friend and I had roofs blown off, siding on buildings were gone, detrimentd cars, and so much more. Moreover, there were a lot of down trees and detriment to the power lines and to the transformers! Needless to say, there were several people who were without power during and after the storm. I was one of them, and at first, I thought I would be great with no power… But when the October heat took over my 2-bedroom house with no cooling system, I thought I was going to lose my mind! There was actually no relief from the heat. I considered going to stay with family members, but they had no air conditioner either… Some had generators which only can do so much. So, I did the next best thing, I got fortunate and found a nice hotel downtown and that’s where I spent the next few nights. I had a comfortable bed, room service, internet and most importantly air conditioner. The hotel worked out well, in fact, I had a couple of my family members come over to take fortune of the air conditioner as well. It was during that week that I realized how much I can’t live without air conditioner. It’s one of those luxury items that I need in my life and will pay extra money to have it.
