Back to the thread - really sorry to hear this, kazzzz. What state? I have family in Louisville, KY. They are all camping out in the small condo of one cousin who has power!

We lose power in Florida during the hurricane season. But we do NOT have to deal with it in the freezing cold. That's perilous.

Do not be too proud to get to a shelter or ask a friend or family for help.

Karen, get those sheep on that treadmill, so they can make electicity. Harness some kangaroo power.

I too deeply sympathise, Kazzzz. It's awful for fridges & freezers. Just hope it soon gets sorted. (Can you claim any compensation or bill reductions or anything?)

Thanx guys! We had the power back on fairly quickly but not all were so lucky, people have been without it for 3 or 4 days now.
My mum was listening to the radio a couple of days ago and an elderly lady phoned in, very vague and bewildered, saying she was alone and hadn't had any power for days and that her food had melted all over the floor from the fridge, that she couldn't use her fan and didn't feel well. They took her offair and wirhin 30 mins had the emergency and welfare services there and had her out. I'd sya she is lucky to be alive, poor thing:(. Yesterday we had 45.1 here but my friend reported 47.

As usual our infrastructure isn;t coping. power loss, running out of water, the public transport system has had hundreds of cancellations all week, it got so bad that they offered free public transport to all, albeit an olive branch offered a bit too late in the piece. We have an ubderground rail system that loops the city and that lost power yesterday as did Crown Casino , horror of horrors, imagine the loss of revenue there!!! What a shame, lol.

And of course the bushfires have begun with loss of homes in country areas. It was a late starting Summer but it's gonna be a bad one.

I'm so glad for everybody concerned. We have a lot of power outages in my neighborhood. SOme from wind, some from ice, some from looking at mailman the wrong way. HAHAHA Honestly, the power company swears it's not any worse here than anywhere else. But some different neighbors have kept statistics. We know better, but we can't do a darn thing about it.
