I wish I had snow. We haven't had any yet in South Central PA. But I'm still hoping.

What? That's like a quarantine. :facepalm:

Yeah, we had some bad ice storms here in missouri a few years ago. Knocked out power for us for a while. The thing I remember most was the sound. That's right. Not the sound of the rain that then froze onto the trees. It was the ice itself that was making the sound. As the wind blew, the caoting of ice on tree branches was cracking in a million places at once. If you step outside, you could hear it, I could even hear it in my room. It wasn't like snow falling, just think of a small stick of ice cracking, or when ice cubes crack when you put them in a drink, and just make that sound repeat itself infinitely randomly at once. That's what it was like. Very creepy, since that was practacaly the only sound.

If we loose power, we can still use the stove and we still have hot water (gas heater). Unfortunately our gas boiler, which heats water that goes in radiators (so it uses no blowers), is electroncally controlled. The system uses a solenoid valve for turning the gas on/off to the burners. The solenoid draws power when it's open, so if the power goes, so does heat. The system also uses an electronic thermostat and flue opener, and a water topoff that also uses a solenoid. It runs of off 24 VAC, so it's not as simple as connecting two 12v propulsion batteries (eg golf cart battery) in series.

Wow, that looks really bad phantom flanker.

In my town in MA we just lost power and had a few downed powerlines. In fact, a negihboring town declared a state of emergency because people would not have heat for their homes for several days. My town was fortunate enough to still have power, I only suffered a brief brown-out.

yea its really bad here. im one of the lucky ones that has power and im really thankful for that, but there is power out everywhere, and it's going to be out for a while. some people might not be getting their power back until Christmas, now that would stink.

But my town was pretty skechy looking too.. I was out for an hour and there was not one sign of life.

No gas either..... for over 40 miles :laugh:

We had a pretty bad ice storm last year around this time. I hate ice storms.

Wow, Capone posted again. I didn't think he'd come back here after the thread he made.

Well I'm in western MA and this must've just missed us... It snowed once a few days ago but other than that it's just been cold....

Fox urine nothing! I would rent an elephant from the local circus and give it a massive dose of ex-lax. I would then proceed to "cork it" with an attached string so when the kids show up KABLOOEE!!!!!! See if their parents can sue an elephant for defacating! -ZZaque

We didn't get slammed like other towns around me, I lost power for a good 48-54ish hours though. The lines for gas and fast foods we're crazy, on saturday it was probably a 45 minute wait to fill up on gas. There wasn't much to do without power so on Saturday I went to the mall to do shopping, one town that I usually by-pass to get there was completely on lock-down because of the roads and fallen trees. My girlfriend went to southbridge and she said it was crazy she had to dodge trees on the highway and wait for tractors to clear trees. I havn't been to many of the really hard hit areas like gardner or fitchburg but the people I've talked to that have said its like a war zone.
