Power outage

Postby O&J'sdad on Sun Dec 12, 2010 6:08 am

We lost power for about two hours. It just came back on after the sky turned green with a transformer blowing in my neighborhood. My wife kept telling me to relax. All I could do was take my canopy off and cover my tank with blankets. I hope it isn't a problem for anyone else.

Ouch - so far everything is still on-line here in Middleton *knocks on wood*

Although actually I have lost power several times (happens more in summer for me) and the tank weathers it pretty darn well. My power seems to "flicker" a lot when thunderstorms roll through, which trips the GFCI's. Great safety feature, but that means power is off until I get home and manually re-set it......
When on a journey, it is good to have an end, but in the end it's the journey that counts.

I heard about it, but luckily mine did not go out here on west side.. Sounded like a pretty large outtage. I hope all is well with all our friends in the reefing community! I'm sitting here drinking my coffee watching the plow drivers try to get their one truck out of a snowbank. Nice entertainment for a Sunday morning :D
