Well we've been without power since Sunday 9 am. 64 foot limb from 100+ foot tree in our front yard took powers lines off our house. Our whole town was without power, now only 67% . Not complaining just communicating, my friends and fam. In VT have it so much worse. This will be the third straight day my electrician will "be here in the morning" I just know he will show today, couldn't blow me off three days in a row. Well we have a Genny and a pool aka 20,000 bathtub. Life is good like being at camp. Hope everyone else is will. Typing post to druid sucks a little, but without id have no connection.

    When we were without power for a week 2 winters ago when the big ice storm came up the Ohio river, I was lucky enuf to get me a big generator. It cost twice what you normally would pay but it runs my whole house. Best 800$ I ever spent. Every homeowner should have one.

    Oh and by the way brother my prayers are with you. Our church has been praying hard for all those in Irenes path. God bless you. Rick

    Thanks for the good wishes and prayers. But we have it pretty ok except for not being connected so much. We have roof over our heads and a bed to sleep on at night so I cannot complain. Plus the weather has Benn perfect. Ok just one complaint I use a Genny every day for work and I am no so tiered of listening to them we live in a nice quiet closed off strew and its dam noisy outside. Well that's all.

    Best wishes and prayers. Generators are worth their weight in gold.
