We loose power here over pretty much everything. Wind storms, down pours (we don't really get "rain" we get flash floods), sand storms, willy nilly reasons too.
When the power goes... it goes. Winter time it's not too bad as you crawl under the blankets and just snuggle up with a bedmate or a book and just snooze and play lazy. In the summer time it is worse. We mainly use fans over here not so much air conditioners and that fan is needed for a good nights sleep. So we just take a damp beach towel and use that instead of our regular blankets and that pretty much can keep you cool for the whole night.
I don't worry so much any more when the power goes out, I am very very used to it. I worry more when the water stops running. Sometimes we get a notice saying the water will be off for a weekend and to fill up your buckets. Then it's not too bad, but when it is a sudden loss it can really ruin your whole day. No shower, no flushing... doesn't sound so bad I know. But imagine it goes off in the morning and not back on till long after dinner. In the middle of the summer in the desert.
