Seriously? 105*F on Saturday? I feel so sorry for those 100,000+ people in our area who still do not have power!
Friday it's to be 107 in Kansas. We've hit that already. We are hotter than Baghdad!
it hits you first, then a few days later, we get it!
Even in celsius that's hot. Hope everyone gets their power on soon. Is this taking unusually long by Baltimore standards? Re: Baltimore of course Wallis was a native wasn't she ?
SMR, we get major storms through this area every year or so. In August 2011, it was Hurricane Irene, then in Feb. 2010, it was the 50+ inches of snow in one week, and so on and on and on. But this was a unique storm, quick, wide and fast-moving. But the power is usually on within a day or two. Our major issue is that all of our power is above-ground, not buried and that's what causes the problems - first, the trees have to be removed, and then the poles, many of which were broken off during the storm, have to be taken out and replaced and then the wires rehung. We've got crews from as far north as Canada and as far south as Florida helping our crews.
Can you believe this weather? I have contractors working at my home, and I don't know how they are managing. I have the news on and am listening to the "still no power" stories.
I took out bottles of water to the trashmen today.
Oh I am so sorry for those poor people without power. Lets hope this gets resolved quicklyYou all have my permission to take it easy, drink lemonade and readHelen
