How bad did anyone get hit with this early snow storm? In Northern NJ where I am, trees are down all over, power lines are down, I have no power. I lost my power Sat. around 2:00, thank goodness I bought a brand new generator since I lost mine during hurricane Irene. My generator is just a plug in, but that is good enough. I got a big one that runs 45 amps. @ 240 volt. This is just what this area needed. We are just getting back on our feet from Irene. Good luck to everyone.
Like you did with your lemons, please send some of your sunshine up north, we can use it. At last total here, we have 10" of snow in my back yard ( elv 600-650' ASL) while at work (only 300' ASL about 5 miles away) they only have 3-4" of snow. When I woke up ( and before I started generator) the temp was 23 deg F. It is suppose to go up to 40 deg today and up to 50-55 deg the rest of the week. I just have to wait for the POCO to get here and get power back on.
Parts of my town lost power and are still dead. A tree limb tried to knock down the lines across the street from my place, but the lines stayed up. We have that diamond pattern arrangement with the insulators, about 4 of them between polwes, of 3 phase distribution, 13.8KV I think. The insulation on the wires must be pretty good, they are bunched together at the crotch of a branch of that tree limb. Called the police about it, figuring it was just a matter of a few minutes before the lines would snap and cause a hazard, but they must have been quite busy as they took a while to take a look. It's still like that now, I suppose once the POCO has everyone back on they'll clean it up..
