Good morning. After about 7 years of a tree company called asplundt tied up traffic regularly while removing trees by power lines a tropical storm yesterday knocked out power to half a million homes in CTdue to downed trees. Refund I say!

I'm not quite sure I follow, Mark. Were the trees uprooted? That's considered to be "an act of God," isn't it? I'd be more concerned about the security of your power grid that couldn't bypass that area and redirect power to other homes outside of the immediate area.

Kwak, I live in CT. There cant be a God here!



Going to work during the power outage is a blessing. Got wifi, gets me out of the house for most of the day too. Just me and my son at home. Girls fled to inlaws lake house. After my chores at home are done I listen to sports in the garage on the radio with a beer. Actually not horrible.



Good morning.

Good morning,

Yeah. My wife is going to Michigan to visit friends. The numbers there are lower than here. I'm opting to stay home. It's supposed to be beautiful so I'm off to the grocery store to get some more beer.

Good morning! Well, after 5 days we finally got power back. Most of the work was done by out of state and country (Canada ) companies. Let the investigations of the Electric Company begin. Heads are going to roll for this epic failure. We pat some of the highest electric in the nation.

Good morning, guys. My son gave me a 3-something-am wake-up call. Let the week begin.

Good morning.

Sorry to hear for the rude awakening, TwoCubs. The last thing we do every night is prep the coffee machine so that if we're up all we have to do is push START.
