Ice Storm

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by RHiller, Mar 6, 2008.

  1. Well, did anybody enjoy the ice as much as I did? Our power went out about 5:15 PM Tuesday and it finally came back on 12 hours later. It seems a pole broke off and snapped a line out in the middle of a corn field. The trucks couldn't go out there so the just hooked the line back together and left it hang about 10' off the ground. I'm glad I bought a new generator a couple of months ago. I keep me nice and warm and the fridge running along with the sump pumps working. I had put a smaller generator on the market forum but nobody wanted it. I'll bet a couple of the guys wished they would have bought it now. Hope that's the last of the ice for this year.

    We lost power for a couple of hours when a tree took out some power lines. Ohio Ed did a fine job getting things going again. Some spectacular fireworks took place from the arcing between the two cables. I also got to go out right in the middle of the slop coming down with my chainsaw to help a buddy get a large pine branch out of his driveway.
     

  3. They are now saying 5 to 10 inches of snow possible thru saturday for those of us west of I-71. Enough!

    My power went out yesterday just long enough for me to drag the gererator out of the basement, start it, and dig out an extension cord. Soon as I came back inside, the power came on.

    My sump pump has been running non-stop for four days. Without power, mi casa would be under water.
