Your Homeowners Insurance will cover all costs to run the genny until street power is restored. If you have a claim for downed trees, etc.... just make sure the adjuster knows you were on a Gen for X days, burning at a rate of X gallons per day.
Ohhhh, we are getting rain now......
I didn't know that. We'll have to let Geico know if/when we lose power. Wish we knew that last season with Irene and Lee.
Our friend called them and asked and that was the bulletin she was given. You have to understand, where we live in Sussex it's literally like a third world country. Having electricity is not an right here, it's a privilege. The attitude we're given by JCP&L is that of, 'Heh, you should feel lucky we've let you have power on a normal day.' We're literally one step away from posting guys on roof tops with cell phones waiting to call the militia that the JCP&Ls are on their way and setting up road blocks with burning tires so we can fire RPGs at the JCP&L trucks. It's a friggin' war zone here. We're pretty close to a JCP&L Down movie, "Harell: We got a JCP&L Truck down, we got a JCP&L Truck down." Matthews: Truck 61 is down. We got an *censored* down in the city. Truck 61 is on the deck now.", then we'll get Delta Force/ACE/CAG guys on the ground trying to recover the drivers, "This is mine." as one of 'em tosses a satchel in the driver's seat after pulling the driver and bucket guy out.
But I did read a weather alert and it doesn't appear to be as bad as they are making it out to be. But, a lot can change between now and Monday/Tuesday when this is supposed to hit. Hopefully it changes to just rain or better yet...sun.
Also, Sandy is a terrible name. Couldn't they of come up with a better name? Geez...I think since I hate the name I'm even harsher on the storm. I mean, it's not the storm's fault it's name sucks.
