    Lost power, from northeaster

    I lost all power today around 9:30 am,the wind is wiping at about 60mph with snow. Lots of trees and branches taking down power lines.
    took about a 1/2 hour to turn off main breaker and plug in generator gas powered it’s so pose to keep the heat and fridg on and also take care my grow
    room as well as a few lights it’s been running all day now as long I keep filling it up no prob. I got a generator after I lost a grow,power out for a week!
    Hurricane Sandy was my turning point! I lost everything in the fridg. And lit a fire in the fireplace we stayed in that room for 5 days with a battery powered am,
    fm radio.i would recommend a gas powered generator for any one who is growing inside and wants to stay warm and eat. Lol

    Yea,I got it too, don’t worry springs right around the corner 3/20 ha,ha,ha u never know,it could happen. Cabin fever has got me good. About the only thing I can do is b satisfied with my indoor grow and plan my out door already got my seeds and most of my outside supplies. Just for kicks I started 4 autos the other day 2 Girl Scout Cookies and 2 big buds just to kill time till I can grow outside again. Looken for that free sunshine 🌞 I usually shutdown my inside grow during the summer it just gets to expensive to try and keep the temp right ( to hot ) just got to keep on keepen on. Catch u on the flip side.

    ya f that I have a 4 car garage/barn so theirs everything in front of barn and then the driveway about 50 yards long when I first bought the place I used a type of sled that we used in Maine but that was in my twenties ,I had a plow truck for a lot of years but not lately I only shovel about 30 feet front walkway 10 feet patio 20 feet so I'm happy with the situation now lol just expensive

    I haven’t gotten to that point yet,I’m still using my 4 by 4 quad with a 4’ blade and shovel of course but after this last storm it sure is tempting to hire someone to to do it for me! Took over 3 hours to clear,it’s a big drive 3 cars wide and can accommodate 9 cars at once

    costs me $45 each time the plow comes this storm $90 but it wasn't wet and heavy and it was only a foot so I'm happy about that , I have been thinking about a place where someone stuck a plant out in the woods in February. Hey Potted you deserve no need a break you put in a hell of a year go have some fun sit in the sun and worry about your grow lol

    Got about 15 inches of wet heavy white s#👁t the governor called a state of emergency and shut down everything !, powers still on it came back about 12 hours before the storm started yesterday and is holding on for now. I got my wife looking into airfares to Cobo again this spring we just need a little down time. With my luck it will b my harvest window as usual and that’s👌OK I’m leaning towards a couch lock lately anyway. Lol

    All ready stocked up on gas,the snow is intensifying over a foot at 2pm its not spouse to end till 8 pm,still holding on to power fingers crossed 🤞I won’t lose it again! As for my grow it wasn’t effected at all,until I got to it, did some heavy defoliation last night a bit to much? When I get started with those snips I just can’t stop,the girls shake and quiver with anticipation, dirty girls.
