Snow Already, Now No Power

I have watched it snow for three hours. Tony fish tailed it out of the driveway to go hunting, came back after getting gas for the truck, he said he would just hunt at home since the people said it`ll be deeper before nightfall. My elderly tenant called, said her power was off, I told her to call the power company and report it. Within minutes my power went out. I am total electric and the temp is down to 63 degrees in here. I have always wondered why the power company has not buried the lines, would that solve the problem? I want solar power so badly, I can almost taste it. I am thankful for battery operated laptops and wifi. Do I sound miserable? I am.

Yes, I can understand why you would be miserable right now. No snow in the Chicago area, but we will get hit in January and February for sure, but the power never goes out, even when blizzards come our way, thank goodness.

The lines in our neighbourhood are buried. The power still goes out. We are fortunate to heat with wood so the house doesn't get cold when we lose power. It's been snowing furiously here for the past hour or so, but the ground is still warm so everything is melting when it hits. It's a wet, miserable mess outside.

Yeh all our lines are above ground, which causes trouble sometimes We don't have that much bad weather, but we do get a windstorm now and then. One January our power was out for a week, because the windstorms were all over California. I hope your power comes back on quickly.

Well I hope everything goes back to normal for you real soon. I am always in a panic when it comes to electricity. So if the wind whips up or the weather is bad I am in high stress. Will keep my fingers crossed for you.

I'm sorry your power went out. I hope it came back on or comes back on soon. Now, is not a good time to be without it. I don't know why they don't bury the lines. Solar is a good way to go. I hope you're able to one day.
