Ya gotta know I am just having some fun. I don't think anybody wants to see what happened a couple years ago happen again. I'm fully aware of what happens in a hospital when the power goes. I've been on both the operations side responsible for the air conditioning and the patient side of things during such an event. Neither one is a pleasant experience. As for not having water. I'm on a well so no power, no water. After the "big one" in 2003 I had a 12Kw genny installed. No a/c but keeps the necessities humming...Wheelchair, scanner, fridge, pump. You know, the important stuff.kb2vxa said:Hi sweat hogs,
"What we need to mellow everyone out is another one of those two or three day power failures."
Wheelie, ya gotta be NUTS! Hey man, heat kills and a power failure can be deadly for thousands, just ask anyone who works in a hospital. Even when power stays on they take in so many it would boggle your mind and when it's off they're crippled, emergency backup can't power the entire facility and air conditioning which presents the heaviest load is the first to go. A couple of years ago the Point Pleasant feeder failed under overload conditions on one of the hottest days of the year and the water company not having backup the pumps failed. We couldn't even get a drink of water for hours under tropical rainforest conditions!
I hope you're kidding because having lived through several times without a breath of air blowing and no water I take things VERY seriously. Frankly I hope you experience something similar once in your life and you're attitude will change REAL quick.
Rottenchester. That name doesn't bother me. It is the murder capital of NYS. I live in Greece NY 12 miles out of the city, ranked 21st safest city in America. I do have a friend who lives in the city and there are some areas you just stay away from.Hi sweat hogs,
John, you give new meaning to the name Rottenchester. Just be glad you don't live downstate, south means hot.
