Power back –

After 5 full days with no power and freezing temps it was finally restored today. It snowed all day too.
The house is back up to 60 and it feels tropical.

    Yuck, that sounds extremely unpleasant.

    Good thing that’s over!

    And I hope my neighbours and I won’t be next, with the sleet and high winds outside today. 🙂

      For blackout protection insurance install a powerwall of at least 10KWH (Telsa $3500). It won’t cover all daily electrical uses as a family may use up to 30 KWH a day but it will allow lighting and a few other things that are a priority.

        I thought I replied to you and Jim Davis but don’t see it here. We live in a small condo and there is nowhere to put a powerwall or a generator. We just lost heat and two catalytic propane heaters kept it comfortable. We still had hot water. I could have cooked on a camping stove but we mostly went out. This is only the 2nd time in 30 years we have had a multi-day outage. It was below freezing the whole outage period so I put our frozen stuff in the trunk of the car to save it.
        We could have gone to the Royal Park Hotel about a quarter mile away at the bottom of the hill we are on. But no need and their rooms start about $400 a night. I teasingly told my wife we could get the Presidential suite when she said they’d fill up fast…

    Do like we did: keep plenty of batteries in the house… and move to Florida. 🙂

    Glad your power is back!
