13 hours of no power. 15 hours of no internet. Nice little storm.

 

So if y'all are wondering where the Seattle Huddle people are at they are most likely still without power.

 

Storm wasn't anything out of the ordinary for those that live in hurricane areas....but was pretty big for up in this neck of the woods. Been through worse in the NW but I think this will do for another decade or two. LOL

 

Just giving an update... from my side of the pond.

sky,

 

how did this compare to that little arc thingie?

 

 

 

LOL Like I said... been through worse. Oct '62 up here (Portland actually) was twice the storm with about ten times the damage. I will admit though.... being born just a little late for the "arc thingie" has always been good luck from my POV. :D

 

Problem now is that all the trees are 40 some years older and a dang site more fragile when it comes to wind. The trees are the big problem here.... blocking roads, in houses, through cars, and over power lines. :D

That was our problem a few weeks ago. The areas that had it the worse, ours included, all have really old and tall trees so when the ice came down, so did the trees.

I saw that storm on the News Tues./Weds. Looked nasty. They said sustained winds over 50mph! :D

First the snow storm then this!!!!! :D ........did the Earth's Axis shift while we weren't looking? :bash:

Hope all goes well!

completely understand and glad you are ok.

 

we've gone through similar in SF... i remember years when VERY large trees fell throughout their neighborhood and the damage that resulted.

Come on now.

 

Sky has lived through several Ice Ages... these little storms are nothing to him... problem is, since the mammoths went extinct, it is a bit more difficult for him to find something to kill to make into a shelter.

 

:D

 

OK, now that was funny little buddy!

 

Sky, you are strong like bull. Keep your youngun out of trouble too, ya hear!

didn't see this thread when I started the other. :D

 

I guess I was just jones'in to post. :D As I said the numbers are staggering considering it was nothing but wind. We had 75 mph sustained winds on Alki for about 2 hours. the beach looks like a war zone and still has no power.

 

we lost juice for a small amount of time compared to what some others will have to endure. the problem now is that it's gonna get down below freezing the next few days.

 

Seeing this just makes me feel even more for the people of the gulf coast & what they went through last year. :bash:

Man.....2-3 months ago we were w/o power for ~5.5 hours, we got 4-5" of rain, and the winds were 30-40 gusts. All but a behind me neighbor and I were flooded, up to 3' in the basement. A few even had generators and/or BU sump pumps and it didn't help! There were dumpsters in most driveways that were full after a week. :bash: I can't imagine what would have happened if it were longer! :D

The best to all of you! :D And I hope it was just one of those 20 year storms!
