Well Thursday evening while I was away in Michigan the ice storm had cut the power to some half a million customers, us included. As of today we still have no power and the electric company is saying it should be restored by Thursday or Friday. I am traveling and returning home on Wednesday evening.
We have the gas fireplace and the wood stove so heat isn't a problem but without power there is no water, well water runs with a pump, and of course it gets dark at 4. The basement has about two inches of water because the sump pump isn't running. When we drive up the street at night pretty much all of our neighbors have lights on because they are running generators.
So all we want for Christmas is 8500 watt generator, thanx.
