Knocking on wood, yes, we have power. But the thought of this and the occasional hurricane we have dealt with in the past, along with saving money staying home this weekend convinced me to order a 4,000 watt LP powered generator so we will live in luxury next time it does go out and have internet and a fridge running if it happens on the warmer months. We have gas logs, kerosene heaters and about 8 gallons of K1 on hand for those power failures... and we can put the perishable food out on the porch in dog proof containers when it is cold. A generator would give give us a fan to circulate heat from the gas logs and more entertainment options like TV and modem/routers for internet if those lines are still connected.. and charging the phones inside instead of out in the car.
Good to hear you're prepared. Although we are fairly inland of the NJ shore, we suffered 3+ days without power after Sandy. Our gasoline generator had the carb hang up and flood the engine, so we bought an LP gas one to replace it. This time of year mainly for heat, but during the spring our basement can flood when we get snowmelt combined with spring rain when we don;t have power for the sump pumps. Ah, the joys of home ownership LOL. We're planning to be on the slopes tomorrow morning, fortunately we are within 30 miles of 5 ski areas so we can pick and choose based on how much snow they ended up with.
Stay safe and warm! With this storm we'll be at least a bit more likely to see everyone at Blue Knob next month. Gotta sharpen my edges for the NASTAR course
