    Haven't had electricity at the house all day. The house is completely electric except for the hot water heater. The highways are icing up, we're chasing wrecks and it's ****ing cold. Send me a Canadian down here.....................:D

    That's when a gas water heater is great to have.

    We had winds up to 75mph the other night, and a section of town was without power for 2 days. Not really cold though, 30 degrees at night. Pretty uncomfortable for home grown So. Cal. people though.

    Hey Bubba, be careful out on the road. Black ice is no fun.:wink1:

    Huge. There are only a few towns in the area that have power right now, and here where the office is located, it's been fluctuating every so often.

    Don't really mind the cold (well except inside the house:D). When I got home this morning, the wind was blowing pretty hard out of the north and it was asscracking cold. I went to bed listening to the trees break apart.

    I was the only one to stay 2wd last night. I was offered an Expedition, but turned it down since the guy had to work today and he came into town to stay with his parents, which meant I was driving my car back home anyway. There's one bridge I have to go through, it's down in a draw. I hit it and just hung on for dear life cause it was all iced up. Made it through, but it was not real fun..............:D
