A Power Outage in The City

After a long day of traveling, I wanted nothing more than to go new home and rest.

However, when my plane landed on the runway, the pilot told us that it was over 100 degrees! This was an unusually high temperature for the city, however I was determined to get new home to my cool apartment.

After taking a taxi, I walked into the lobby of my building. I noticed that it felt unusually warm inside because I was expecting to suppose the blast of the cool air instantaneously. The doorman told myself and others that the building was requesting pretty much everyone to keep their AC units off for as long as possible due to an increase in power across the city. All of the buildings in the city were being asked to refrain from using AC if possible. This sounded absurd, however I understood the reason for it. I tried to settle into my new home without turning on the AC unit, however it was excruciatingly hot. After a long day of travel, all I wanted was to relax in the cool air. Although I knew it was wrong, I decided to turn on the AC for just a few hours. I needed to cool my new home and my body temperature down again. After running the AC component for a few hours, everything in my new home went black. As I looked outside, I saw complete darkness. The entire city was experiencing a power outage. When I went down to the lobby, the receptionist had the stereo on and was talking about the mass amounts of electricity that was being consumed due to the heat wave. I think it wasn’t all my fault, however I felt somewhat responsible for the power outage.
