    Default CONTEST_- How long until Sandy knocks out the power?

    Well, what time and date is your guess for the power outage. Closest guess gets absolutely nothing but the satisfaction of being clairvoyant.


    Monday - 1357 hours

    Oh how fun! Let's hope it doesn't but with Potomac Edison's track record, I'm going take a guess at 21:15 Monday.

    Default The butter side down rule of thumb...

    My guess with schools out, and kids cooped up, this should occur at 0950 Monday morning. Prepare with a trip to Wallymart to get your antidepressant medication refilled. I hope all stay safe and sane!

    No fair, the power didn't go out. (Obviously, only a few people lost power. Does this mean ours will never go out? I can hope).

    The big winds are here... major flickerage @ the bottom of gate 4. I give it an hour 'till it's dark. Found 2 minor (so far) leaks around new windows. We don't normally get the wind / rain events out of the North, so I'll add that to the 'post storm' list. The good news??? No stinkbugs seen for a few days.

    I'm going to say 8:00 pm because that's when 'The Voice' comes on.

    I just sat down to watch The Voice and its not on - everyone is covering the storm. Maybe that means the power will stay on!
