Re: Irene

Alive and fine. Storms starting to end. Rain should stop within an hour or two. Wind will probably last a fe hours past that. Power went out at 5:30AM and after a quick ride around, I'd guess I'll have no power for about a week. Yeah, no WSM today but I'll have the grill gong later!

Re: Irene

Watching the news and you were the first one I thought of. If you have a very long extension cord I'll be happy to share a little juice. Here's hoping it doesn't take a week to get back up and running. Be safe.

Re: Irene

Nick, are you serious about no power for a week? Why would you
say that?

Re: Irene

1/3 of the island has lost power. A quick ride around the area I can see where the line is that fell. Problem is beyond that there are trees and branches hanging on too many electric lines so they won't restore power until the other lines are cleared. No biggie, I refuse to defrost my freezer so there is a chunk of ice in it. That should have no problem staging frozen if left unopened. The refridg is getting emptied quickly so I waste nothing. A cooler with ice will work.

Re: Irene

Nick, I am sure that your neighbors would love it if you would help clear the downed trees in their yards. Pecan, apple, hickory. It's ok to be choosey.

Nick, glad all is well. When Mother Nature wants to get you, you're doomed.

That's GREAT news. I'm remembering "Charley" a few years ago. It's no fun being without power for a week.

Re: Irene

I was finding it hard to believe resident of the Island would be without power
for more than 3 days.

I lost power for 6 days in Murrells Inlet during Hugo. No ac sucks, but the worst part
is no water heater. Cold showers suck the most!

They are still at least a week away from restoring power to everybody.Main roads still have traffic lights out and trees still blocking them. They came into my neighborhood last night like an army, very impressive. 5 or 6 trucks going and cutting limbs out of the way and another 5 or 6 hooking electric lines back up. I wasn't worried if I had to live without electric for a week, the heat subsided a lot and we shut the a/c off, food lasted in cooler and hot showers are over rated!
