Got a phone call here from PSNH as well. There's a generator at our place so I am not worried, maybe we won't lose power!

It's getting really windy. As long as nothing on the main line goes down we might be OK. Our lines are undergrown and the main road just had PSNH take down trees.
We have a generator but still it sucks to be on that! No hot water or heat as it doesn't power the whole house just pumps we need to stay dry living on the coast.

Hope everyone is staying safe.

I felt that same way til last January...dh was on the road and I was in a cast, trying to pour gas into the portable generator without shutting it off first cause I couldn't get it restarted....all one handed...and half the time in the dark.


suddenly the generac was a higher priority.


Quoting 143myboys9496:

 I know we should. But there are so many other things that need to get done first.

Quoting Crissy2424:

Sounds like it! Maybe you need to start a 'Generator' fund.

Quoting 143myboys9496:

 It sucks. We lived like nomads. I would shower at my neighbor's when they ran their generator. I'd shower at my mom's and bring laundry.

I mean, it is what it is...but it's frustrating. When we lived in MA, we'd loose power alot too..dh and I think we have a knack for finding homes on the oldest grids in town! LOL

Quoting Crissy2424:

 Man! How come no one has a 'Dislike' button :( Sorry to hear that. I remember the October one..thankfully we didn't, but people around us did.


Quoting 143myboys9496:

 Well the storm this past October, then last year and 2 yrs before that.

 teenagers are no picnic to entertain either.

Quoting lasombrs:

right when its down i know its gonna be down for a long time!! Seems the grids in raymond don't restore enough people at a time so we are always last on the list. Fingers crossed we dont lose it but i know if we do it will be gone a long time which cancels school to because the schools are on the same grid as me. we will go to family in mass (as long as they have power) if it goes past 3-4 days because there is just no way to entertain a 3 and 1 year old for that long in the dark lol

Quoting 143myboys9496:

 pffft..after loosing power for a week 3 times...I'm not holding my breath.

I am tho, praying and hoping we don't loose power.

Yup.  One handed.  I preferred not to use my giant torch..aka cast....to hold the 5 gallon cas can.  It was agony.  The whole thing.  Especially at night...while I held the pen light in my teeth.  Must have been quite a show for the neighbors.

we went whole hog.  It'll power everything.  It was basically the only project that got done last year....
