The power went out due to snow around 4:00 yesterday afternoon and at noon today it’s still out.
My house is currently 42F by my thermometer because the oil boiler needs electricity to run.
The reason it went out is that branches on trees laden with snow fall off the tree when they freeze and hit the powerlines.
I’m a Florida boy and in Florida we cut back the trees so they don’t touch the powerlines. That is to minimize the damage to the powerlines during hurricanes.
No bullshit, 25-foot easements around powerlines.
In New Hampshire, they just let the trees grow over the powerlines even though every year this happens and people lose power.
I asked why they don’t trim back the trees from the powerlines and all of got was “people in New Hampshire like looking at the trees.”
People in New Hampshire are fucking retarded.
Florida prepares for hurricane season cutting down trees and when the power goes out it’s back in maybe a few hours.
New Hampshire does nothing to prepare for winter snow taking out powerlines, year after year, and takes a day to repair the lines.
Ive been less inconvenienced by a Cat 3 hurricane in Florida than a snowfall in New Hampshire.
When I complained, I was told that everyone in New Hampshire has a generator because the power goes out so much.
“I got my generator, fuck you.”
I keep being told how New Hampshire is this great Libertarian state.
Live free or die.
Fuck New Hampshire Libertarianism.
Give me Florida governance all day long, where I can have both friendly gun laws and a grid that prepares for seasonal weather.
