This weeks Nor’easter
« on: March 10, 2018, 04:11:16 pm »

Just got power back. Power went out at around 5:30 am on Thursday according a neighbor.

Huge number of trees down in my town. I hear it was worse in Bob Leonard’s town.

Bob, if you get on line and need help, let me know. Actually, if any of you are in the metro west area of Boston (between I95 & I495 and need help, let me know. I have chain saws and generators and submersible pumps.

We had it better than most. I have a standby generator that handles the important stuff so we were comfy. I judge by the frost lines on the propane tanks that I have another 3 days or more of fuel for it.

Thursday after lunch I walked down the street with a bunch of neighbors to look at the wreckage. Our street was somewhat passable thought not plowed. When we got to the next street we found out why... a 24” oak was down across the street. Plows could not pass.

I went back home and loaded my chain saw in the truck and proceeded to cut my way down to the oak. Then I started in on it. Deryl, my wife, dragged branches. In a bit, the neighbors that owned the tree came out with their saw and the 4 of us went at it. Soon, more folks joined in. Two and half hours later we had cleared it sufficient for emergency vehicles to get in and for us to get out.

Tomorrow I plan to go harvest some firewood.

I'm heading to NJ for a show tonight!!!!! Sounds like snow on Tuesday and cold weather altogether. Good thing I will be indoors most of the time!!!! Perhaps my Cali swagger will scare off the Nor'easter weather :)

. . . Bob ... I hope you are OK.

Bob is fine. He figures while everyone else is preoccupied with the snow, he's over at Gillette stadium "working" on the visitor's intercom sys . . . Oh, sorry Bob; guess I shouldn't say anything.

Never mind.

Cohen, you turkey! May all of your standing wave ratios go extremely high. I throw the curse on you.

I was in the same shape as Rob who only lives a few miles away. The generator worked fine for me so that wasn't an issue. The big problem was the oak trees and the falling limbs. Especially the limbs that fell on my wife's truck. Luckily my chain saw wouldn't start so I had the fun of cutting limbs by hand. Oldest daughters boyfriend then came over and finished the job while I moved snow. Thought I was going to stroke out. My youngest daughter just sold her house and haven't passed papers on the new house yet so they're staying in an apartment complex down the street. She got power back last night, 4 days after the outage.

Grocery stores are without power, gas stations, and everything needed is either without power or running on generators. I'm up to my ass in equipment failures, even in some of the best data centers on the planet. Oh well, there's always another day (I hope.).

Bob - Curses not withstanding (get in line), I'm sorry to hear of your (and Rob's) storm damages and tribulations. It sucks and I hope things can return to 'normal' as soon as possible.

(But please realize your unapologetic enthusiasm for your home teams is great fodder at times, although this was likely not one of those times.)

Thanks Henry, curse removed.

Of course you realize many or most of my sports related posts are intended as fodder. Especially for guys like you who can enjoy the game (pun intended.). Hope you and the family are also well Henry. Look's like the Yankmee's are building a winning team, and the Sox have picked up a bat. Should be a great season to watch.
