So tonight we are experiencing our very first power outage in Thailand. A few nights ago it flickered a few times but then all power came back on. Tonight the winds came in, the rain and lightning began, and next thing you know we are sitting in darkness. We luckily have tea-light candles and a few flashlights. I’m not sure if the electrical systems here are just very sensitive and this is a regular occurrence or if tonight is a particularly heavy storm. The worst part is that our A/C units won’t work so we are basically in the heat until electricity returns. Homes here all have windows and window screens so the winds blowing through do help. Water does not work either do to the fact that it is ran by an electric pump. Well, I guess I’ll sit here with a beer and see what happens!
