Just got arount to browsing some pics and news from the storm. I'm speachless. All my best to those of you who are in the dark (thus likely not reading this) and I hope you all remain safe. Remember, the clean up poses it's own dangers. Be careful and remain optimistic.

I'm looking at this one. But need to replace the main service panel along with it...

Why do you have to replace the panel? Is there a pdf file for the installation? I couldn't seem to find one.

No not at all. It made that very unusual turn inland instead of sliding up the coastline. A nice change for us, not so nice for the areas it did hit.

Whew! First chance to get back here to tell you what's been going on.

Lost power Monday night. 50 degrees inside my home today. Power is still out in my neighborhood, but today, for the first time, I saw power trucks driving around my town. Didn't see one stop and fix anything but at least they are in my area. I've been taken in by friends (Bruce and Jan) and am doing fine.

Widespread outages in the Cleveland area. 250,000 without power. They expect to have most folks back up and running "by the weekend."

Maybe they're passing through for the sandwiches and beer? smile

As Andy said, "Holt tight". And say hi to Jan and Bruce!
