    I just heard they are out of power until at least Saturday!!!!

    Along with a large portion of that area.


    I truly hope Mr. Yardley is safe.

    Holy smokes!!!!


    I can not imagine not have power right now, especially if that affects your heating process!

    Anyone else in this predicament?

    It's been so long since we've seen Jeff on here. I still see him and Dave Ferraro DFN777 on Facebook sometimes. Neither have changed a bit.

    I have never experienced an outage like that, knock on wood. I hope everyone stays safe!

    Hope he gets power back soon. Been there done that twice. In Virginia in the late 90's after an ice storm 3 days! Here in NC 5 days after an ice storm. NC was worse because power to the street came on late into day 3 but the line to the house was down and then try to convince Duke power that you still have no power! We could see the broken line but getting a human to report the outage was next to impossible! Originally being from the north (CT) we were prepared always for 24 hours without power but never had such long outages!
    Since we have well water (both times) that became a hassle after a bit. We had no gray water issues (you can melt snow we have a pool etc, but we went thru all our drinking water and had trouble finding a store that had any left. 4 labs and 2 cats drink and slop a lot of water!
    I love my woodstove!!! Heat for the house. Instant coffee is a must as you can boil water on the gas grill. We also heated soup on the grill etc.
    We lost power once for 3 days in the summer. That was much worse. I had to worry about the deep freezer etc. I'll take a major outage in the winter over the summer anyday!

    The news feed was that about 800,000 were without power ... worst hit seemed to be near Lancaster, PA and Philly suburbs. Some were PP&L customers (my utility), but many more PECO (Philadelphia Electric). The PECO service area is more densely populated than around here, so many more people suffered.

    In my area (around Allentown/Bethlehem), it seems that aggressive tree trimming since Sandy may have helped. Trees and bushes were coated with ice around here, but the power stayed on ... thankfully. Many bushes are still coated with ice, but the trees are mostly free of it now. We were out of power for 6 days from Sandy. Fortunately, it was not very cold during that period.
