Power Outages SUCK!!! ><
« on: January 31, 2009, 09:33:36 PM »
Those of you in the eastern US probably know about the awful ice storms this past week. Well, my state, Ohio, was one of the big ones that was hit by it. Due to this, we lost power and had to resort to using a generator my grandmother gave us a few months back. Luckily, the phone lines weren't out too long and I'm using my computer on the generator but... still. It SUCKS. :( It went out Wednesday morning, I think, and is still out today, Saturday. They say it might not be back on til midnight tonight, but it'll probably be back on earlier than that.

Just had to vent a bit about it. Due to where my family lives, we're always one of the last groups of people in my town to get our power back on. Oh well... I have my Nintendo DS and Internet, so it isn't too bad, I suppose...

...smeg.

I don't remember ever suffering a blackout beyond 12 or so hours, but I suspect that's mostly due to luck.  How fares your refrigerator and its contents?  Abysmally, I suspect.

Well, be sure to give us a shout when all is powered again!

The generator helped a lot, so it did ok. But just about an hour ago... It came back on! w00t! Thats the 2nd time in the past half year or so we've had power out for more than 3 or 4 days... But its over now. :3
