I wish people would see the whole panoramic picture and not just the little snap shot from ones own window. Some areas were without power for 12 hours or more. People in Virginia are still without power. Older, top heavy trees in rain soaked ground or under wet packing snow tend to fall and take down power lines. Back in the snow storms of the early 80's & 90's, we went without power for a couple of weeks or more. These days people can't go cold turkey for 4 hours without the internet or TV.Power was out for about two hours, no problem. Thanks HEC, I don't know what these cry babies would do if we had a real disaster.
It wasn't like we didn't have time to prepare. Friday I saw people in SUV's nearly running over pedestrians in the crosswalks. Be careful out there, other people are on the planet too. Those pedestrians are armed now.
