At some point in your life, no matter where you live in the grand world, you’ve likely experienced a major power outage at least once. You may have been a child at the time, or you may have come home to a dark house after a long day at work. Even more devastating, you might have come home from a long trip or a vacation to find the power has been out for a few days and all the food in your refrigerator is spoiled. However, you may just have to spend a few hours entertaining yourself and your children until the problem is resolved. In the end, any time you lose power will have consequences, even if those consequences range in severity.
