The longest one I experienced was for two days. It was because of heavy rains.
Otherwise 2-3 hour power outage isn't that uncommon here.
Hbu,? What was it like?

For Indians like me, A better question would be "Have you ever had electricity all day long?"
In fact, I'm experiencing a power cut right now :(
You already know what kind of conditions are here.
The longest one I experienced was for something like 5-7 days? Back in 2006, there was a power grid failure after a storm. The inverter barely lasted two days. It was summer vacation. We used to sleep outside in the horde of mosquitoes. There was no source of entertainment except watching constellations and counting satellites. I used to compete with my dad about who could find the most number of satellites in the sky. Days were harder to spend because of excessive heat. And there was no refrigerated water.1

Yes, back in NYC we had a power outage for nearly 3-4 days. I was a young girl around 10 years old, and it was a bit scary at first. Then I remember that my parents had talked about the major blackout back in the 80's. We really didn't have anything then. No TV, no power or gas, nothing. Forget cell phones as we never had any at the time. The landlines were down. And we had to get back to the apartment before a certain time as violence was increasing and people started taken advantage of doing certain crimes.1
