Yeah the first thing I'd do after a fucking hurricane and during a power cut would be to go on Datalounge.

I'm near the Heights. I have cell connectivity.

What would you do, r7? There's nothing to do.

We're getting solar later this summer.

Actually booze and the DL is my go-to for pretty much any major event in life.

Ours just came back on in the Ark-LA-Tex, as they say here, luckily we have a small generator that can barely run things, and we had 67 tornado warnings, the most ever recorded here, it must be a record in the country I would think, just one fatality.

41 hours so far. A moist towelette can only do so much.

R8, FYI, solar panels on your roof won’t power your house during a power outage.

In order to keep people hooked up to the power grid and paying fees for grid upkeep the solar panels on your roof will not produce electricity when there is no electricity coming in from the street. This is to keep people from disconnecting from the electrical grid entirely and it not being able to support itself through fees.

You can get a syne wave generator to hook up to your system that will mimic the electricity from the street to bypass this but it’s very complicated and probably illegal.

Still no power, so I’m staying at my parents and watching bad tv. Apparently there is a That 70s show sequel in the 90s and it’s unfunnier than the original. I should have stayed in my 90 degree apartment.

Still no power. It was 88 when I went to bed and 85 when I got up. Fuck Greg Abbott and fuck this state. I say that as a fifth generation Texan. This is absolutely appalling!! We just went through this 6 weeks ago!

R22, I agree. I took time off to go help my mother in bumfuck Trinity, TX, where she retired and the whole fucking town was dead since Tuesday. A whole town without power. No businesses open at all due to the state's ineptness. All those rural poor hourly workers unable to go to work. My step-father rigged up a generator for their fridge and we had some fans but it was still miserable as he had to shut down the generator at night. No wifi, cell phone connectivity was sporadic. Generators run on gas and good luck with finding gas out there. Lines wrapped around the only place on the highway in the next town that had it. I finally came back to Houston last night where I knew I had power but was surprised at how many businesses were still dark. My local Specs had their glass doors smashed in. Fucking looters.

We're getting a NG hook up so no more having to go get gas for the generator, in 58 yrs we've never had the gas go out, I hope I didn't just jinxed myself.
