Based on what I see over at viewoutage.entergy.com we fall in the ‘heaviest hit’ category, and may no see power restored till late Tuesday, though that may change.
We have gas heaters and a wood stove and a gas range top, so heat and food prep is not a problem. Slow maybe, but still far better than our ancestors had 100 years ago.
Plus with the snow still on the ground to harvest and the generator to run at times, keeping what must be kept cold is possible.
Might have to throw some stuff out, but the vast bulk of it should fine.
Thankfully we have some books we can read and lights to read by, so while all this is annoying, it is something we can get thought.
Sadly far too many people cant say the same, and that even when the power lines are all good.
So far now, thats all I have to say.

#generator #power #joy Okay I have power for a little bit, running on a (finicky) generator, but now able get some stuff done / charged. Got photos off sd card, though processing is going to have to wait. Still snow and ice outside, was getting some light rain earlier.
Tried hooking up spare dslmodem to parents pc so when I have no power (or other issues) I got turn on internet on their side (of the house), but had forgotten the password.
Got power back to my side so could get stuff done, but was having horrible internet, turns out have the other modem off is not enough, needs to unplugged from phone line.
So things are working, copied my install of firefox my account on their box, and have dsl password, so I’ll have that as a back up now.
Thought I saw through the trees last night a security light back on, so I’m hoping that some work in being in restoring power out here.
Now I’m going to try to catch up and as much as I can, while I can.
(please excuse any spelling or grammar mistakes, trying to be quick about things) 🙂
