Yup thats my plan, run the gen for a couple hours at breakfast and at dinner to chill the fridge, chill the freezer, let the water heater pump run to heat the tank (indirect), hcarge the phones and laptops, run the septic pump once, and cook. Figure I could go 3 or 4 days on a gas can that way. Hope we dont need to.
This is a good link for weather junkies. .
That is sad i just wish this storm leave.
Sad news pen. No juice here. All hands safe.
Oh, that's horrible. Prayers up for all involved.
Very sorry to hear of the loss Pen.
Our 90 year old house is taking in water. We just discovered a serious leak where the enclosed back porch meets the kitchen wall at the back of the first floor. Plus its coming into the attic around the chimney (which is only used by the natural gas furnace and hot water tank, not the wood stove). The wind never drives rain this direction or this hard against my house.
So tragic. There aren't words.
So much for having power back. Just lost it again. Bet it will be a lot longer this time.
That is terribly sad. There aren't any words for this kind of loss. My heart goes out to his family.
not setting any records, but this is as low as I have seen it!
Otherwise pretty boring. The power has stayed on. The sump pump has only run a little. Very windy! But so far its good.
We ran out of gas. The lights went out and we lost "The Voice" for about 12 minutes. I had to go out and fill the tank, because I'm the only one who knows how. That's right ladies. I'm the king.
Hail to the king baby.
My neighbor called me paranoid when I just stayed up on the genny. Well, until we lost power again a little while ago.
Thunder and lightning and the cars are now covered in freezing rain here in Johnstown PA.
Johnstown?? jeez, i find myself there about every other month for work. Gotta stay at the hampton inn, its the only even remotely civilized place.... but they no longer offer govt rates! It will be the holiday inn.... tolerable.
always make a point to stop at either Scott's by Dam or Rey azteka
sure is a great ride between here and there!
The Hampton Inn is just a couple blocks from my office. And a number of the "undocumented workers" at Rey Azteca are patients of mine, as I am also known to frequent the place.
And no, I never dreamed I'd end up in Johnstown. Grew up in Hollidaysburg.
Prayers out going from here
Sandy has exceeded surge/flood water levels .
Damage is worse than predicted.
Not over yet, still to hit some areas, stay safe.
Talked to Mom in Pittsburgh, was hard rain getting worse, wind just getting bad.
Hunkering down now.
Good luck thru the night!
NYC is going to be in a world of hurt with millions of gallons of saltwater flooding tunnels, power infrastructure and subways. I fear this is going to be a very serious disaster. Stay safe folks.
Heard 3' or more of water in the NY Stock Exchange.
That will ripple thru the global markets, NYSE down for a while.
This is the lower east side a couple hours ago, before they lost power.
Pulling for all you folks out East to come through without much damage.
Just to show how large this storm is, things are rockin' & rollin' all the way out here with heavy north winds.
Here's the marine forecast for Lake Michigan 4 blocks to the north of me. I went down to the beach just after sunset to feel it. Got a lot of sand in my mouth.
