Earlier today the AEP site had us finally getting power restored tonight by midnight.
Didn't see a single soul out there today.
Now the map says the 8th by midnight.
See this is what happens when you piss COTA drivers off.
Power has been off and on several long periods in my section of WP. I am guessing some wires somewhere are damaged but it seems like it is toying with me. My fridge has been renamed the food destroyer.
if its not the storms its the HEAT
Make no mistake about it, this is dangerous heat today and tomorrow. Please be careful.
way dangerous. i can barely keep my second floor at 72. :(
My home office is 84.7. Trying to get as much done as I can before it's either too uncomfortable or my router overheats. At least we have power.

With no electricity in the house, Amanda Hoffman of Newark heats up soup on the outdoor grill and hangs the family’s laundry over the chain-link fence to dry in the blazing sun. About 95 percent of Ohioans affected by outages from last week’s severe storm are expected to be back on the grid by midnight, American Electric Power officials said this morning.

Storms Prove To Be Big Business For Some

The second the storm blew through last Friday, companies and communities knew there would be some work to do. Tree service companies got their teams together and started the process of helping. "It has been hectic, rushed to get eveyrone taken care of, trees off houses, getting things fixed," Bryce Crawmer with Schmitt Tree Service said. The same can be said for tool rental businesses like Sunbelt Rentals.

I live on S. third street by United Way and about 4 AM we lost power until 6. Can't imagine this is storm related, but it was very strange. Anyone heard anything about the outage?

I heard someone DROVE INTO a newly restored transformer in Clintonville. Lucky 13 is out of power again.
Holy smokes, we JUST got our power back on in Granville.
Hot times today!!!
Luckily we had a friend invite us over for a few days, and we got to enjoy a hot shower and some cold A/C.
I can generally survive fine without the A/C but when its over 100, no way.
I mean, I can survive when its over 100 but my personality drastically changes. As in, my bullshit tolerance drops to zero and I do things a lot slower. And I spend vast swathes of the day just sitting in a chair watching condensation roll off of a beverage.
Day 8. Yesterday, this is what was accomplished.
Funny how AEP keeps saying they have 85-95% of people back on, but the completion process doesn't seem to be snowballing.
I feel really bad for those folks in the big apartment buildings on Town, they are sweltering and getting increasingly panicky.
This reminds me of the summer I spent on Parris Island...
We have retreated to friends in German Village.
Man that sucks. I lived in those apartments on Town for 3 years and yes with no AC they are AWFUL. I could not imagine them in this heat. A lot of the people there are older and have no where else to go. I hope they get the power on soon.
see, that doesn't really bother me as much. I like the cold and the snow. The ice is only rarely that annoying.
If you're cold and its wet you can just put on another layer and a waterproof outer layer. Or build a fire or something.
When you're hot and you've already stripped down as much as legally allowed all you can do is get wet and hope for the best and wet underpants are not comfortable, especially when you have to go drive home at the end of the day. And there's no such thing as an anti-fire except "AC" (And mine is broken right now, btw, so I'm extra annoyed.)
You are always welcome to come over and visit us. And I won't make you go up into the garage attic (where the temperature hit 131 deg. F today).
