Praying now, Wabigoon!
Let me know if you have anything more specific.
Hope your girl gets back what was damaged.

Hope every one is safe and gets back on their feet quickly. It sucks trying to deal with Nature's calamities.

Briefly lived in Hiawatha when I was very young. Dad worked for Collins Radio working on communications for the Gemini and Appollo projects. His last project was communications hook ups when Nixon went to China. He was laid off the day after Nixon left China.

Power just came on here after 26 hours.

Years past we always had a welder generator that we could plug into our dryer outlet and run what we needed to. Those have all gone away, and the wife and I have had a couple of discussions about a dedicated generator over the last couple of years.

Our discussion about generators this morning went something like;

I just talked to our daughter, no power, hot gas water, hit, and miss text, and internet.

She is cooking on a gas grill. One Caseys open forty miles away. Some grocery stores open, they must have generators.

Thanks Russ, if the hay gets baled by Friday, my wife, and son are going there to help clean up. They should take lots of ice as well. BBQ gas too.

The power in central Iowa may be out for up to 2 weeks in portions of the metro. There are a lot of big power lines laying on the ground with a large number of broken poles. My grand kids and daughter in law are staying with us. Her parents are only 7 miles away and they are worse off than the son, daughter in law and grand kids.

Wabi, little towns in E Texas after the Hurricane flooded New Orleans years ago went without electricity for 6-8 weeks and it wasn't ever mentioned in the MSM.

was up there today helping, went thru 3 gallons of chainsaw gas. Heard from a friend that is in the utility field that there are over 100 crews there but could be months to get all online. What a mess. Before the chainsaw thread starts I was running 2-029 stihls and 2 -460 huskys

I live in CR. If she is caught up on her cleanup maybe you could send her over with a chainsaw? Only if it is a stihl, if she has a husky tell her we are all good.

Power just flip on at my place bout an hour ago. Luckily my old man always springs into action during natural disasters and he hard wired a generator to the main panel. As much as I have been sweating the ac has been nice.
