Watching some coverage of the people out East got me thinking about that. I think we were out for about a week due to an ice storm in Des Moines in the early 90's.
White power or black power?
Currently, I have neither it seems.
3 days in 07.
4 days. Happened this summer.
5 days in the ice storm of 1992 I think
Lulz, you again.
24 hours after a storm. I borrowed my dads generator to get the fridge and deep freeze running and as soon as I hooked it up the power came back on. I since have purchased a generator that will run the bare essentials in my house.
Close to two weeks... And a bunch of one weekers.
I bought two generators after that... Never again.
13 days..... it was horrible and awesome at the same time.
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
There was some tornado and high and damage in the area around 04, 05. Sirens blew...heard a big crack, a bunch of tree limbs fell. We were without power for about 3 days. Took all our refrigerated/frozen stuff to the mother in laws. The other side of the road had power, and one guy had a generator down the road that you could hear
In October of '97, there was a bad ice storm in the Des Moines area overnight on a Saturday and all day Sunday. My family stayed home and watched "The Sixth Man" (on VHS) instead of going to church. Shortly after the movie was over, some powerlines outside our house got too heavy from the weight of the ice and came crashing down. We were without power for about 48 hours. That Sunday night, we listened to Game 7 of the 1997 World Series on a battery-powered radio.
the ice storm several years ago...10 days, no power.; we did fine, except the Mrs...she hates the winter
