The news is saying that 1.5 million here in the pacific northwest are without power. Ours has been down for 20 hours and the utility says that 99% of their customers are out since the main BPA lines feeding the system are down. It might be a few days. Dress warm fellow PNW people, the cold and snow are coming this weekend. Winter weather, ya gotta love it.

Thanks for the offer! Some pack mule meat might be mighty tasty Smile Just kidding. We're doing fine. Generator is running, lots of dry firewood, and the pantry and propane tank are full. The pioneers would be jealous. I'm a little worried about the neighbors though. They're the type who seem to live one day at a time without planning ahead. I'll wander over later and see how they're doing.

Nothing to do but sit it out huh Ken?

I have a good friend in Vancouver, I talked to her this morning and she said the wind was so bad last night it blew the grill off the fart extractor in her bathroom about 3am this morning. She said she nearly had a heart attack from all the clatter, nasty wind!!!

She lives right downtown in an old subdivision, said she had to walk many blocks to get on a bus this morning, so many trees down the buses couldn't streets, sidestreets were blocked.

Best of luck.

Yep looks really bad out there. Good thing I went to work for a power distribution equipment company. Bad weather is good for business, tragically.

Stay warm, stay dry.

Ken, nothing like a stocked pantry and a full propane cylinder on the grill. I don't need much. I always had about a week of food on hand at a minimum in winter. That way when the weather turns ugly, you can stay warm and fed.

Wonder if they'll have problems with people stealing the downed power lines for the metal like the east coast did...

My sister said my brother in law was home, the transit was down in Vancouver. It seems like they have had funny weather. I have not been following the weather in the pacific is this the remains of a Typhoon?

I'm not sure where this storm came from. If it's not on the Weather Channel dot com 10 day forecast page I won't see it.

Vancouver Sun said Race Rocks on Northern Vancouver Island saw 100 mph winds. They stated this was just a normal system that is normally on the Queen Charlottes and Stika track that headed more southernly.
Now I know why I had a wasted youth shovelling snow in Terrace. I bet Mark is happy he doesn't have to deal with this anymore.

100 mph winds were reported off the Oregon coast too. Wasn't there a treaty signed that was supposed to keep Canadian weather in Canada? Smile

Well the normal track is northern Alaska and B.C. coast. I never lived on the coast but 90 miles inland. I can remember days where my father worked around the clock trying to keep the power on, as a lineman. My mother would threaten me if he could not get back in the driveway after working hard. I spend days working on the driveway as the snow pile up fast. Luckally the wind was not normally that strong that far inland.
