Thread: Nor'easter

  1. #1
    Anyone here from the northeast (USA) and lose power? I lost power sometime after 5 PM Friday March 2, and got power back Monday March 5, a little after 4 PM. Really thinking about getting a whole house power generator. With no heat and hot water those 3 and a half days were no fun. Not to mention no TV or Internet (I do not own a laptop, tablet, or smartphone). I do use a UPS for my TVs and desktop computers, but that only gives me 30-60 minutes of use.

    Worsts part is now we might get a foot of heavy wet snow dumped on us tomorrow and into Thursday. Hopefully all the trees that are going to come down did already during the first storm (3" of rain in less than 24 hours with tropical storm strength winds).

    Last time I lost power this long was 2012 during a Nor'easter that dumped about a foot of snow.

    To be fair, if I were the Nor'easter I would have killed you.
    It's all Meg's fault.

    So sue me.* I thought as an American he would approve of the tip of the hat to mindless violence more.


    * Likewise I thought as an American you would approve of the tip of the hat to nuisance lawsuits.I'll try to work in addiction to subscription drugs, rampant stupidity and widespread racism when I get the chance.

    PS Would it kill you to occasionally mention hockey or moose, fudge packer?

    Those views of Americans mostly apply to Southern and Midwest rednecks (rich and poor). There are some of those people up here too, luckily not many. We don't let natural disasters kill a lot of people up here. That seems to be a southern (Republican) thing.

    I don't think you understand what having a viewpoint means. Seriously that's why I hate you Mormons.
