Re: Donna and tornadoes/OKLA storms

I just got my electricity back... but it was just out from 5 AM until now.. about 8 AM. That doesn't sound bad .... but it is such a weird feeling knowing how dependent we are on electricity. It is still raining and we have already had almost 3.5 inches since last night about 10 PM. Donna, I hope you get your electricity back on soon. I remember how terrible it is back during the ice storms. I am so glad that you have generators, that helps but most people don't realize how hard it is even with generators... you have to start them up... keep putting in gas... go buy gas.... make sure to clean them out after the storm so they will be ready the next time you need them. It is a real hassle.
I am thinking of you during all this.

Subject: Re: [CHAT] Donna and tornadoes

I survied all the storms so far without any damage to worry about. (but
another round is coming I hear) Lotsa clean up to do and I did loose
most of my fish in the ponds. So many are not as fortunate as the
tornado went airborn as it went over my house. I still don't have power
at home, but came to work to get these computers running since they do
have power.

Might be 2-4 days before I get power at home. Have a couple of
generators running the important stuff at my house and mothers...sump
pumps, freezers, and one fridge. The good thing is my town after the
last time we didn't have power for days, has installed natural gas
generators on the wells... so we have water! Yeah!
