After that big blackout a few years ago,I bought a generator.It's a lot less expensive than loosing all of your food and freezing your butt off.

I would imagine the city has shelters set up for those who don't have generators.
The elderly are susceptible to these sort of things.

Amen! A $299 generator has been running our house (including the furnace blower) for the past 2 days. Thankful...and business continues as usual for 8 gallons/day.

Considering how fragile our power grid is, a backup generator is a must. This storm was bad, but face it, we've all seen worse and to be without power for a week is unacceptable, expecially in the "big city".

years ago, power companies downsized"to better serve the customer". this is the result, storms+power outages= no power till enough workers can come from outlying areas to help. so what will they do when everyone is in the dark? you wait till hell freezes over.

AEP is the pits. WHY are they never accountable for all the suffering caused by their slow response time. WIll they reimiburse people for frozen pipes, spoiled food, dead plants? My "grid" always goes out, yet we are surrounded by people with power.........

And what is even more infuriating, we'll get the bill for their lousy service! It wont come out of their profits to pay these workers........

My parents have a generator they said I can use anytime, but they're an hour away. Plus, renting a townhouse, I have no place to store it when not in use. So, yesterday, when the temperature in the fridge started to get too warm, I loaded the perishables up into my big cooler and took them outside and put them in my Jeep where things would be cold and secure. Stuff in the freezer was still frozen through the whole outage.

Really sucks when it's happening to you and you have pets with no where to stay.

Still in Upper Arlington on Thursday 10:00 a.m. with no power. We were one of the very, very first to lose power early Tuesday evening. It is still not back on. Other areas in our neighborhood lost it after ours and they had power restored last night. I know AEP workers are doing the best they can in miserable conditions, but wish there were a better way of addressing the order of electrical repairs. Not great to be first out of power and the last one. Thank you to your workers and for doing the best they can!

We are on South Central Power, our neighbors are on AEP. Since we are at the end of the SCP grid we are always the last ones back on because they have to fix everything between here and the transmission station. We were out for seven days in 2004 and five days in 2008. We're prepared. We have a generator, keep extra fuel on hand, extra water. The power companies do their best but ice is ice and it takes time and a method to get things back up and running. We lucked out this time. Our neighbors lost power and we didn't. We did lose our cable though for about 19 hours because the cable comes in from the AEP side. What a bummer. Sorry about everyone's inconvenience but it's winter in Ohio. Just think, this could be Chicago and we could have been in the middle of a blizzard. Hope everyone stays safe.

Makes one appreciate their generator. Depending on AEP to get anything done is already bad. They made record profits last year and still do stuff in a mind numbing half baked effort.

If you don't have power, keep reporting it to AEP. As they get people on around you or other areas, they need to know you and your neighbors are still out.

Im just north of 270, off of 23 and we lost power Tuesday evening and are still out. It's an apartment complex and only a couple of the building are out. It's pretty terrible when you have 2 small dogs and a cat as well.
