Congrats to all that won at the holiday party.

If anyone has watched TV, I'm sure you've seen that Oklahoma just got hit by a major ice storm, so wasn't able to be here last night because of no power or net...

Please Scott, tell me my name wasn't called. LOL

Congrats again, and sorry I had to miss it.

Nope your name wasn't called. :D

Sounds like the storm we got hit with last week.

Being with no power SUCKS. :D

That is good to know, too bad it couldn't have been called and I could have been there, but glad my name wasn't called when I couldn't be there.

Yes, having no power is horrible. I feel sorry for those around me though, I only had to go about 20 hours without electric, people that live in town and who are on different electric company have been out since Monday morning, so my situation is much better.

Got home from work and the Wii was waiting at the door for me. :D

Things like this are why being a Satelliteguy is an honor and priviledge. In my 3-4 years here, and over 2 years as a pub member, it's things like this that make me believe Satelliteguys.us is the best satellite site around.

Thanks Scott & Eva, you put on a great Holiday Party.

2 days after a hurricane in Florida, 2005. I gave up after 1 day w/o power and went out and bought a generator. At least I had tv, lights and a FAN for the 2nd day and night!

The worst I had was in Florida with just a normal storm with very high winds. That blew down power lines in so many area's that it took Progress Energy almost 24 hours to fix it. With power on for only ten minutes it went out and stayed out for nearly five days. I found out later they replacement a blown part near my home with the wrong part and it blew it up. Next thing I found out was that the backup generator also was never checked and hasn't worked in quite some time. Now consider the fact they didn't have a replacement part and it took them four days to get the part to fix it. I ended up staying at a model once I found out how long it would take them to get the new part before they could replace it.

I never lost power more than a day even in New Hampshire but I only stayed a single winter and it was a mild winter at that. I never lost power this past weekend though so I'm happy. Oh and I was so ticked off losing my fifty pounds of crab legs in my freezer.
