Supposedly it was so we could hang on to our emergency vehicles and power company trucks and such.

i tried to tell you.

how bad is it?
It's on the wane. Tbh, the power is out because of the antique transformer out front of my house. It blows fuses all the time for no good reason.

I think we saw wind up to 70 ish. It was all from 6am till like 2pm, which was convenient.

None in my hood, mostly because all the vulnerable ones have already been blown over.

Power back on, not too shabby. 7 hours or so outage.

Yeah that shit is the worst. I do have a generator I can run the fridge on but my fridge is a built in and getting it out to get to the plug is a fucking nightmare.

One of these days I'm gonna install the transfer switch i bought.

you an electrician?

need a big generator to power the whole house.
Enough to do that, but I will probably hire someone to do it because I dont have time. My generator now can handle everything but HVAC, but I've been ogling Generac while house units for eons.
