ice-storms do that.

We got a nasty ice storm. The power is out in most of the Upper Valley. I am posting from the wife’s brand new iPhone…it seems we now get 3G coverage. Gin supplies are holding, and we’re cooking on the wood stove. More later.

    Cooking on a wood stove and bouncing radio signals to space…

    What a fascinating modern world we live in! 🙂

    Did you get the gerbil generator wheel yet? So you can fuel the munchkins with sugar (bio fuel) to get electricity? 😀

    3G fast enough to play WOW? Hope you have power for all your mobile devises or that they were all fully charge.

    My girlfriend got me, in addition to Beer & other items, a duel Blackberry + USB car charger, for Valentines this year.

    So even if power is out we can charge both Crackberries at a time from one car. Can also charge my Kindle or anything else that has USB charger.
    I remember the Halloween storm in ’91 here. Was out of power for over a day for me & I was one of the lucky ones.

  5. Well, looks like Springfield & Plainfield are next on the “fix list”, so that should help you out.
    Fire up the genny for a couple hours & you’ll be all good tomorra.

    Something to be said for a good diesel generator… Half the fun is running all of your lights while your neighbors languish without juice (for lack of preparation )
