    With only 8 inches on the deck and a whole night and day to go the power just dipped. Glad the genny is on standby.

    For those of you who have a smart phone...my iPhone 5 can hub my internet to the outside world for three computers and my TV!


    ....just got another dip while typing, not long now.

    What's that Francesca rated for? (BTU/Sq Ft)?

    How's been doing/holding up/cleaning schedule? (Self cleaning)??

    Hope y'all weather the storm. We are just getting a Chill tonight. Not much snow...

    (BTW- Love my smart phone (Droid Bionic) but use my iPad-2 at home 99% of the time. Pretty sure the i5 is gonna be my next phone.)

    I have a Samsung Fascinate Smart phone I got a few years ago, and while I like it, I hope when I get to the "update date" on the 18th this month, I can get an iPhone. Being a Apple/Mac guy since 1986, this Droid phone just isn't cuttin it. <fingers crossed>

    Hey Scott

    I like my new iPhone5 also. When I need to check my schedule, or call a biz contact or just see a stove manual when on the road, I can call them up on the internet web server that I built and go into the database that I designed. No need for expensive web hosting and design! LOL

    P.S. We don't loose power much but we have a nice LP Heat n Glo 550 zero clearance fireplace with auto ignition that fires on 2 C cells hooked to a digital room t-stat. The wall mounted T-Stat has a toggle switch next to it. Up for oil and down for gas. LOL

    Once you go Mac, you NEVER go back. Now you're using a REAL computer.

    Don, You can capture a "Screenshot" of your phone (hit the Power/Sleep button and the Menu/Middle button)

    Just hit those two buttons at the same time and you can capture that photo and post it.

    Ahhhhh haaaaa, still here and if you believe it... We never lost power completely, 15 seconds then steady power all night. Bit confused though of which door I will try to escape from. The wind drifted up over the front door completely and we are up over the second window on the back... Looking like the basement under the deck will be the winner. Not sure where the heck the shovels went to....should have brought at least one inside.

    Hi Scott

    I keep plowing the driveway with the tractor/snow blower setup but they only plowed the street once so far the whole night! I plowed out our mailboxes too if the mail truck can ever get down the street. Just shoveled a path from the house to the workshop. Now I have to shovel a path from the driveway to the workshop to get the stoves in and out. Almost done.
    Just fired up the Quad in the workshop to bring it up to temp for working today. I can check the temp of the workshop from the house with the remote sensor. No sense going out there until it warms up. LOL

    I do a lot of photo editing and video editing as a hobby. I have a few Mac's that I do much of this with. But I also use many windows machines. They both have their +'s and -'s. I need a new Mac badly but I refuse to buy one until they bring more jobs back to the US and better the working conditions for those that are not in the US. They are on a path of doing this (Many of the new Imac's are built in the states) and as soon as they get a power mac built here I am ecstatic to give them my money and play with my new Mac's!
