Garage Door Didn't Open

My darling daughter and I went to the library this morning for the Toddler Story Time.  I take her there every Fridays because it is a one of the good ways to help develop her social skills and get her interested with books.  After the Story Time, we stopped at Walmart to do some grocery shopping.  I bought cold stuff like milk, juice, and kids yogurt.  Then we went home after.

At the turn going to our house, I got used to pushing the button of my garage door remote controller in the car.  But suddenly, it didn't open.  I tried again.  Didn't open.  I thought the batteries of my garage door remote control was drained.  So I entered the code in the panel.  Still the garage door didn't open.  I tried a few times but had no luck.  When I called my honey, he told me to try inputting the code again.  There was no response from the garage door. 

The front and back doors are locked in the inside (they have dead bolts).  Windows are locked too.  I had no choice but to go to my cousin's house and had the cold items temporarily placed in her fridge until my honey comes home.  He got home early and found a way to get in the house.  When the everything was fixed, my darling daughter and I went home.  My honey said that the garage breaker got tripped.  One reason is when there's an often power outage due to bad weather conditions.

It was really a disappointing and scary situation.  Thanks God it's fixed.  But there's another problem that needs a solution very soon.

That would probably give me a little scare too, our power surges and just goes out randomly. It doesn't matter about weather.

I really dislike when things like this happen. It is frustrating and sometimes scary when you can't get in your house.

It happens to me ones but good thing i always have back up key on our front door. I hate being outside and waiting for my husband to come home. Especially i dont have friends lives close by.

Our power went out once and I was locked out of the house as well since I relied on my garage door opener as my only way in and out of the house. Now I know to keep a house key with me. Lessons learned the hard way!

That had to an adventure. I have locked myself out of my house a few times. At least your hubby found a way in.

I luckily have a key to get in if my opener does not work. Mine had issues last week where it opened back up on its own. I always watch it close all the way to be safe but turns out my neighbor's son came in as I was going out and their garage door is on the same code as ours and he opened our door up. We changed ours so they are different because I do not want that happening again. Glad you got into your house.
