when you think things can't get worse

Be out of power going on day 2. Man this sucks. Having to charge my phone in the car sucks. This thing dies to.fast to do anything. As you can tell I'm going out of my mind. Having nothing I can do is.bring.the.mad scientists out. Not good having a racing.mind.

Later. This is surely going to kill my phone again.

Claudio

As long as your health and family is alright, its all good. I grew up on a island in the Pacific(Guam) which get hit with typhoons all the time. 5 in one year. The longest we went with out power and safe water was 6 months. Your lifestyle changes but family bonding is the best. Think off it as long camping trip, with alot of BBQ.

I've had no power since 9:30pm on Monday, expected restoration is Friday at 11pm. Big arse tree across the power lines.

Thankfully, I've got a generator for fridge, space heater, sump pump, lights, cell phones and a TV (with an aerial HDTV antenna). Internet is through a local hotspot that is somehow still working. There are extension cords going everywhere.

Biggest pain is burning 5-7 gallons of gas a day just to keep the beer cold, and I'm running low on beer!

Claudio I hope you don't live on the coast man! There ain't much left! Already wracked up 30 hours of OT this week putting stuff back on the poles. And we were 200 miles from the storm. Good luck man and hope you get your power back soon. Feyd....

Ruffle about 35 miles in land. My entire town got taken off the electric grid. Lol.
Not counting all the downed lines. Some 28 transformer blew out. For a town that covers ruffle 2 sq miles lol. This noting they just got power back to main of town and hospital. Shouldn't be to long before were back up. But still sucks

That sucks rainman! I live in Rhode Island and saw my home town wash out to see (grew up in misquamakit/westerly). It's terrible!! I just hope everyone effected here hasn't lost much! Power is easy to restore compared to a house and family! Best wishes to everyone effected!
