Last week Hunzee and his bride came by and left their truck and trailer. Now as it happened we were in one of the worst ice storms in history for this area. We are STILL without electricity ( 11 days ) and it may be 2 more weeks without. Problem is hundreds of miles of lines down (rural area). Luckily we have a generator, oh yeah, cable and internet came on last night. Stay warm Hunzee, Charley :eek:4:

Jeez, that's worse than we looked back in December and we lost power to 50% of the state (small state - LOL) for 3 days and it took 2 weeks to get everybody back on line.

Thank God for my Honda generator - first time I had to use it in 10 years and it just started right up.

Been there so good luck getting that cleaned up.

Here up north, we complain about the well below zero cold and great amounts of snow we are having this winter. However, I sure do not envy you with all the damage and loss of electricity caused by the severe ice storms down your way. I'll take the snow and cold any day over the ice storm. Hope you all do not have to wait much longer to get the utility service back.

Wow, that sux. You guys and gals up north gotta be tough to endure that. I will still take the hurricanes and super high humidity over the cold and snow. Good luck. Generators are a life saver, I have one also.:beer3:

Missouri Charley. I feel your pain. We got our power restored here (KY.) today about noon after 11 days without it. I did not have a generator and spent the first three days and nights without heat. Generators were not to be found here but I did find a natural gas space heater with a blower and piped it in. It was a life saver. I am shopping now for a generator. This is the second time in four months that I have needed one so it is time to buy.

Wow!!!!
we were without for 5 days....I feel for all you, 11 days....hang tough guys....I do say a little prayer for all of you. It's been real bad for a lot of folks....but on a nicer note, we had a group come up from a Baptise Church in Georgia, they have been removing trees and limbs from the elderly and others that can't do it themselves at no charge.....sometimes hard times bring out the best in others....thank you Lord for sending them, many needed the help.
I did buy a Honda generator on the forth day, worked very well....

Be safe all....

Just as a friendly advice. When you purchase your generator, or if you already have one, make sure you install, or use a "transfer switch" which will safely prevent some utility worker, working on the lines outside, from getting fried.

A few dollars spent now, will prevent you from loosing your home in the future in a law suit. Be very careful.
