    I'm not surprised. It has no (less?) abilty to flex....it's a poor choice for this area.

    Well I take that back then, on the caveat I declare your utilities suck, because we were out for 3 days Port Orchard. my friends in Mason county were out for 2. hardly a real problem there.

    what days were you snowed out in Snohomish? about that time I was going to Lake Stevens twice a month and didn't ever hear about that?

    I went through two quakes in my brick house north of Ballard. The Nisqually quake scared the **** out of me. I thought for sure it was coming off the foundation.

    candles are perfectly safe. I have thermals, parka, rain gear, etc. I'd rather take off my parka inside the house.... besides if you need to change clothes it's easier to do so when you have heat.

    just last month I stayed the night in Chemult Oregon during a snowstorm, I had plenty of clothing for 20 degree weather, tell me you're willing to change with no heat source when your clothes are all 20 degrees....... and that's not even bad for some areas, just shimmey on in to your favorite long underwear if mercury is below zero if you have an option for heating.

    I have used candles and kerosene lamps since I was 6, I know how to use them without burning the house down.

    I can imagine Kitittas county Sheriff doing what Gretna PD did during Katrina anyway...

    About 2 weeks earlier, three yrs ago. I remember very clearly because I was in a car accident Jan 9 and it hit about 2-3 days later. I had to go out and clear gates, shovel, feed animals,bring up wood for the woodstove, etc in rather poor shape.

    Unless I was delusional from a head injury from the accident.

    History proves that candles are not perfectly safe. In the years since the big Dec 2007 windstorm (2006?) LED lights have become much more mainstream and provide excellent long term lighting. Using large candles to the point they provide heat starts venturing into CO poisoning territory.

    Greetings, Paschendale.

    If you can, report in tomorrow and let us know. Good luck! We're apparently on the outer fringes of the thing in NE Ohio, and the snow is really piling up here. I wonder what it's going to look like in the morning?

    Yes, being on the Penninsula does offer different strategies.

    You obviously are not a camper. All you do is bring your clothes into your bed/sleeping bag until they warm up, before putting them on.

    C'mon. Werent you even a Boy Scout?

    I heat my home with my woodstove. No heat in the bedroom, I just open the door about a half hr before I go to bed and these days, have a lovely heated mattress pad. No heat in the am. Shower, dress, get ready for work.

    Lordy,I split all the wood myself too! From rounds. At least 5 cords. I do have a propane furnace but it costs a fortune to run so I dont use it.

    The Pac NW, were women are women and the men are...?
