We where without power for 8 days. Ran the tv and some lights on a small gen. Heated and cooked with wood. Had to put my phone line back up my self or i still wouldnt be online. Many wont have electric foy several weeks. Our local electric coop has a estimated 24000 poles down. I drive truck and the power was out all the way to cairo ill earlier this week. The whole town of corning ark was dark for about 10 days. Lots of trees to be cut up everywhere. Should be plenty of firewood. I think we need to start putting more of the electric underground. Wal Mart Sold out of many items. Two people got in a fight over the last bag of potato chips! Dont know what would happen if we get the predicted New Madrid earthquake.
