That map is an unfortunate thing to see.... seemed like this storm was a kind of a dud 48 hours ago!

We are looking at pretty mild high tides, around 8 to 9 ft, on Tuesday and Wednesday which should moderate the flooding a bit.

I just got a robo call from National Grid reminding me to charge all mobile devices! Reassuring? I think not!
And as I was typing this another call from the City of Gloucester but no one or message was there?

The latest Nat Grid call I got was at 2:38 pm on 3/12
It was about a snowstorm and report inevitable outage at ngrid.com/out
Of course that may not be so easy, but I am told they will send hundreds
of repairmen.
The CITY message at 5:35 was about parking ban tonight until Wednesday
morning at 6 am

I didn't think National Grid worked in these conditions? Power was out for 3 hours or so and just came back on. Happy.

Lucky!  Small outage in my neighborhood since 9:00 this morning. NG outage map is now showing a restoration time of 9:45 tonight.  Wood stove has kept most of the house at 68 even without the stove fan running. Got a generator running now.

I have a little generator (1500 watts) that I just use for the furnace when needed. It is a pain to carry it out to the yard and get it running and hook it up though particularly on a dark and stormy icy night which is always the case.
It sure is tempting to install a permanent whole house propane backup generator.

I have a relative who has a whole sweet automatic propane generator setup - she doesn't even know when the power goes out, lol.

Wattage is not in the "need to know" part of my brain.  All I know is that I had to turn off a bunch of things to be able to use the stovetop to create something that resembled dinner.

I had to venture out earlier to check on people and as of about 1/2 hour ago, there was no sign of National Grid in my neighborhood (not that I blame them - it is what it is.).
