My wife and I live in a large apartment building.
There are six floors and 20 or 24 apartments on each level.
My wife and I live on the 4th floor in a three-bedroom apartment. It’s actually a very lavish space with a great view of the monument. We can even see the city park from our scaffolding. All of the apartment AC units are on top of the building. It’s a strange place to put the equipment, but most of the apartment buildings are the same way. We’ve never had a problem with the placement of the AC equipment until last weekend. A clear and sunny day turned into a freak thunderstorm. The clouds opened up and it rained steadily for 6 hours. All of the rivers and tributaries were completely flooded. Lightning struck many places in our neighborhood, including our own apartment building. Half of the AC units for the building were rendered useless, when a large bolt of lightning struck the power transformer. It took 24 hours to fix all of the issues. The rain fell down hard most of the night and then half of the day. My wife and I were lucky, because we didn’t have any trouble with our indoor air machine. Several of our neighbors were unlucky, and they had a lot of trouble from the storm. We didn’t lose power or the use of our air conditioner, but many of our neighbors were not so fortunate. That storm was one of the weirdest weather anomalies to come through the area in a long time.
