Storm Report V- Updated
Update: 4:45pm Sunday. Power came on this morning for a couple of minutes, and with only 89 volts. Then it went off again. There is power about a half a mile from here, so we are hoping to see the lights back on soon.
Update: 8pm Saturday. Still no power. This basically sucks.........
Update: 7pm Friday. The power is still off, and may be that way for some time, no one seems to know for sure. The wind has died down, but now it is clearing off and is forecast to go below freezing tonightand for the next few nights. The forcast also mentions possible freezing rain mixed with snow.
WHERE IS THAT GLOBAL WARMING WE WERE PROMISED?
The electricity came back on for a short while last night, then went back off shortly thereafter. It didn't seem like the wind blew that hard last night, I'd estimate nothing over about 50mph, maybe a little higher. The radio this morning says there are over one million residences without power in Western Washington. I figure it was the saturated soil that made it so easy for the trees to blow down. They are talking about power being out for several days.
We're in fine shape with plenty of food, propane heating and cooking, along with a generator. At the moment the generator is running th oil furnace.
The weather forcast for the next few days is for not too much wind, but freezing temperatures.
