Power aside, I hope you didn't take any damage to your home, JB. Good luck with everything getting back to normal soon.

One tree down. Not a big one, but its been pushed over twice since Ive lived here, and each time Ive done everything possible to save it. This time, tho, all the roots were stripped off!

Extra annoyance, last time it toppled it bent the faux wrought iron fence next to it almost to the ground. I JUST got that replaced. Grrrrrrr!!!!!!!

I live in Oklahoma and on the news this morning they showed a convoy of a couple hundred linemen and equipment greaing up to head up to the northeast to help restore power.

If you have the ability with your provider make sure you report the outage. We had an outage a few months ago that was us and about 4 houses around it. We were the only people who reported it.

JB, was this storm the worst weather you've had in this home? It sounds like it was pretty ferocious.

Ferocious but brief!

Power came backfor all of five minutes. Now out again.

Argh.
That's happened to us here in Virginia once in a while too--a flicker as everything comes back up, then boom, no power again.
Hope you get power back (and keep it) real soon.

Yes. But they dont hold enough power and if I got one now its warranty would likely expire before the next storm.

Power back, but now my computer is telling me its not connected to the internet!*

Call to service tomorrow, but no new pages until this little drama resolves itself.

* My TV cable box seems also to have lost its connection!
