Electrical Reaction


Came home, got a bite to eat. Then suddenly everything went out. I thought that the fuse blew, because I switched on too many things. But it never did that before. And the first thought I had that I didnt have anything on that I needed to save. So I was happy about that. So I got up went over to the fuse box, and everything was point to the right (meaning they were on), so I played around with it a bit, but nothing happen. So I asked if the electricity was out for the whole house they said yes. I called my neighbor on his cell phone, and he was laughing, because he was wondering the same thing as I was calling. Turns out the electricity was out for the area. Then I heard of Nuzha being out as well as Shuweikh, and Rawdah, but at different times yesterday.

The house was still cool, but there was this eerie silence that I never heard before. I was just trying to listen and see if I could here anything, but nothing. It was strange. So I sat down to use the computer again, and not realized there is no electricity. So I picked up my book and magazine went to the living room to chill with my mother, and she was just laughing at me. For the first 5 minutes I was roaming the halls not sure exactly what to do. Because just before the power went out I wanted to play with my PS2. hehehe. I felt very cut off, it is very apparent how electronically dependent I am. I wont deny it! I love electronics, but who isnt these days. Then I realized how much battery I had on my phone, and thinking worst comes to worst I can charge it in my car. I was walking around and thinking what I have running on electricity, but everything seemed fine to me. I just made sure to switch off everything so when the power comes back on it wouldnt be an overload and something burns out. The other thing I was thinking was that the house will get hot after a while, so it was kind of funny sitting in the room with highest chance to get hot. There were other delimas developing in the house, but nothing too crazy. It was just funny though. Then I realized I had my PSP! So I ran over, popped in a new game that I have been too lazy to play, and then bam.. the battery is dead. So my mom laughed at me again, she said she will switch off the electricity one hour a day to see what I do! hehehe

An hour an a half later the electricity came back on, and the first thought that came to my head is INTERNET! hehehehe! But everything went along from there, and the house didnt get that hot. But this is the first time electricity hit us for the summer unlike some of our family when it them at least 7 times this summer and for longer periods.
