    Good to hear that you are alive and kicking. PE inserts are designed to convect well when the power is out. Sounds like you are putting this to the test!

    When you get back to normal, webbie just added a new feature that will allow you to change your name back to Wxman.

    Read this letter today from a boy to his family during the peak of the storm. It choked me up. We don't know how lucky we are sometimes.

    Still plugged into my nieghbor's house with extension cords all over the place.:mad: ConEd says tomorrow night. Gas lines seem to be done in my area. They are still around in NJ and closer to the city. Tunnels into the city are open and more and more subway service is available. Except for the people who's homes are badly damaged or destroyed things are getting better. This storm will be bad for many people. I am not worried about it. I left a couple snow shovels out when I left for work this am.
    It was 20::F last night at my house last night. I have been burning some 3 summer seasoned Red Oak and as long as we keep the stove loaded (when I'm not around) the house has been cozy. I really feel for those with no heat.

    Actually, we're collecting locust on Sunday ... local friends horse farm had 20 + trees go down.

    Locust, ash, maple, pine, & oak. Collecting a crew to go in on Sunday & git 'er dun.

    Hoping everyone has enough gas for the trucks, chain saws. Fingers crossed.

    Gas is fine up by me now. Most stations open. No lines. That might change tomorrow though.

    I just got power and of course I logged into Hearth.com... Hope I did not miss anything while I was in the dark. I was the warmest one on the block with a lot of friends dropping by. No power so no fans. I had to keep both stoves going through the Nor'easter yesterday.

    Just checked the ConEd site. Our estimated time of restoration has been changed from 11pm, 11/8 (today) to 11pm, 11/10. I guess the Nor'easter has set them back a couple days.
