Move into Gilpin Court they always get their free power back on first. They don't want the cow birds wandering around the city looting.

Power went off at 11pm, 70 drgz. Back on by 10 AM 80 drgz. Glad it didn't hit during the day.

Only 150K out here in Richmond last night.

Sammy, can you imagine the smell in "da hood" when the power stays off for too long in this sweltering heat? It's bad enough when the a/c is working. Phew...

Its time to suffer, this is not the last it'll happen. The future doesn't promise easy sailing anymore. All engineers should be strung up.

Don't fret, Dominion Pwr downsized to save money, but now they have to hire more workers to keep up with structual and collateral damages caused by mother earth.
Yeah, they will be forced to hire from now on. Keep the applications rolling. Its job creation time in America.

All you selfish suburbanites are responsible for killing off natural barriers that otherwise would've limited the monstrous impact of severe storms.

You must like the smell, considering how you frequent the area for some strange. Next time pay your hootchie gals with dry ice.
