9. Our power goes out for no apparent reason.

Beautiful sunny day, not a cloud in the sky and the power will sputter. I read or heard somewhere (?) that the power companies no longer trim the trees, and that is a big part of the problem. They haven't cut back our trees along the road in years.

Longest it was ever out was 3 days during a blizzard a few years ago. We lived huddled around the fireplace. We fared better than many people whose power was out for a week! After that storm, we bought a generator. Fortunately we haven't used it yet! I think of it as an "insurance policy"!
