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.

The lines are buried in the area where I live and it makes a huge difference. It is rare that we have lose our power. Hope yours will come back soon. Do you have any other source of heat?

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.

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.

@andriaperry I hope power was restored during the night. Sounds good. Even small it will be effective.

I guess it costs a lot to bury power lines but you'd think it would be worth it to avoid future outages.

I have never heard of power lines being buried. Good idea for Tony to hunt at home. Pretty odd the tenant called you about the power being out instead of knowing to call the electric company.

I hope the power is back on by now. I hate dealing with power outages, and I live in California where it doesn't snow or get as cold as it does there, but it still gets cold in here when the heat is off. Plus my stove is electric so I have no way to cook when the power is out.

My whole house is electric so I have nothing without power. This will change.
