Default 3 days without power....

As some of you might know, I live in the west coast...Sacramento to be excact... I was affected by the heavy a$$ rain and 85mph winds...not fun bro. So because of this... a lot of trees and stuff went down around the entire city... its crazy. My power went out friday at 7:30 Am and Just got restored today at noon. I was on duraflame logs and candles the whole time. The wind was so strong at work that one of our shop doors was closed and blown INTO the shop and the Dennys next door had two windows blown in cutting a couple customers. UTI was shut down friday because of the weather...that is the second time it has happened EVER. So many freakin break-ins around here its freakin crazy.....Ok...Im done... Just thought you might want to read a little of what happened here at my place.

Our heavy winds were a couple weekends ago. We only got to 45-50 this weekend, but heavy rain and then snow. Snowing pretty heavily right now. Will be off and on today, tonight, and tomorrow. Rivers are already bank-full. If we get hit with a warm front, it should get interesting as it all melts.
