I'm on the east side of I 81 near you. We just got our electric back at 21:30. It went down about 11:00 and back on at 11:38 then at 1300 it went down 'till 21:30. At 1300 my house was at 63 degrees (F). When the electric came back at 21:30 the inside temp was 57 degrees. Not bad with all the wind we had. Some gusts had to be hurricane strength. Before dark I had a lot of branches on the ground on my property. Can't wait to see what it looks like in the morning. Looks like a large clean up.
Took the family to Binghams in Lenox for supper. Lights out at Gibson and Harford truck stops. While in the restaurant I talked to a fellow who drove down from Endicott. He said the power was out from the NY state line to Lenox. Binghams was real busy with locals because of the power outage in the area.
I'm not heating with coal yet. I need a chimney built besides the expense of a heating unit. I'm retired and in the spring I will be old enough for Social Security. Once I get on that I can get the chimney built. And maybe a truck too.
