Snowed In! (Bumped Toward The Top By AOW)

(originally posted on 01/28/2011)


Mr and Mrs AOW, are snowed in at the present time. Ice has pulled down the power lines and they are without power, Internet and land line telephone. They do not expect power to be restored until Tuesday.

Warren

Correction: Mr & Mrs AOW have electricity, just not Internet or telephone service. Sorry for the confusion.

Note from AOW on 01/30/2011: I am accessing the web at the public library today, but only briefly: the library limits me to 30 minutes of access if others are waiting in line to use the computers. A few posts may auto-publish below this notice. I'm still not officially back or able to access the web at my whim. Furthermore, more bad weather is scheduled to move into the D.C. area, so restoration of my Internet access and landline may be delayed. **sigh**

  2. The DC area must've gotten it a few times worse than we got it earlier this morning. But power not restored until Tuesday? That's horrible, I hope for it to come on much earlier.

  4. I hope you're safe! I personally hate snow if it falls in any significant quantity. A light dusting, I can deal with. Any more than that ... claustrophobia.

    What about Mr. AOW's scooter?

    Thanks Warren! And keep us informed...

  6. I once went without power for a week due to an ice storm that felled trees and power lines all over our neighborhood.

  7. Thanks for the update Warren. I hope they are OK and their neighbors will keep an eye on them. We went through a ice storm blackout for a week a few years back, but we had two fireplaces and a full cord of wood to make it bearable.

    Dang, this global warming is justhorrific. Does anything Al Gore will help shovel driveways or blade the roads?

  13. Send the bill for any costs to Al Gore, our Fearlessly Forlorn National Weather Forecaster. Where the heck is the warming, big guy?

  16. DAMN AL GORE and GLO-BULL WARMING...

    It's 18° in Rowlett, Texas, a suburb of Dallas. The wind out of the NORTH at 20-25 MPH and it's still getting COLDER... That's the best we are gonna get here in TEXAS today... I hope the damned *Cheese Heads* are happy... Dallas feels like Milwaukee...

  17. Hope the bad weather has passed, it's hot out here, will trade you for the snow.

  18. Last year (in the DFW area) we suffered a power outage which knocked out our electricity for over four days. The fireplace came in handy to keep one room in the house warm.

    Yesterday, we had mandated rolling power outages due to our winter storm. The area has been fairly locked down for two days and not many vehicles on the roads. With the Super Bowl here, all hotels are packed.

    So better rolling outages than a total loss of power.

    The picture caught my eye and it is beautiful. But glad we are in the south where our winter will soon be over. smile

  19. Tammy,
    Thank you for the compliment on the picture in this post. Warren put up both the announcement and the photo.

    Yes, things are crazy right now in your part of the country. I have another friend in that general area, and she's been experiencing rolling power outages. She feels shut in, but doesn't mind too much as she lives alone -- with her three pets, that is.
