Sorry I didn't read this post earlier.  Ohio was knocked off guard and it looks like a war zone went through and help from other states have been laboring tirelessly to try to restore power.  It's only a small part of the Lake area that has power, and we're lucky we were first.  Gonna be over a week for a lot of my rural family. 

Ironic that I got a new chainsaw for birthday Friday.   Already using the hell out of it.

Last night, around 1 am, the lights went out for a second.  Power consumption must be near the max zone.

We were camping and didn't even realize a storm was coming.  Does anyone know a site where I can look at radar maps of the storms that came through?  I love the radar channel and would like to see images.

thanks

Licking County Ohio was one of the hardest hit in our state (which is where Buckeye Lake is).  We still have outages everywhere and they're reporting it could be another week before it's fixed. 

After a little research, I discovered why we were lucky enough to have our power within 2 days.  We are connected to the same lines that feed the water processing station.  It is critical that these lines be fixed first to at least restore water to residents.  It's just a small area that has power and we've opened our home to allow people to shower, cool off or whatever we can to assist. 

We still have some main roads that haven't been opened because of extensive damage and debris.  These situations bring out the best in people.  Most are jumping in doing whatever they can to assist neighbors and sometimes total strangers. 

My brother manages the local VFW that regained it's power.  They have a huge ice maker and our giving it out free to those who need it.  They have opened to the public as a cooling station where they can also get something to eat.

Since this was an act of God, shouldn't we be allowed to sue places of worship since they are his agent?  Just trying to put some humor in this terrible situation.

another +96F four day heatwave begins today: 96, 96, 96, 101... so out of control. (worse in DC: 98, 97, 99, 104)

That will be a total of eleven days in a row where it was +91℉ unheard of in the Northeast.

However, I have endured winter where it didn't get above 32℉ for three weeks.

ps: meanwhile in Brookings, Oregon where I plan to retire: 70, 63, 65, 70F

As I mentioned in another thread, I watched The Blob last night.  Spoiler alert. At the end they realize they can't kill this alien monster, and can only drop it over the arctic and let it lie dormant, "as long as it stays cold" ....

I'd like to revisit the fact that the 5-day forecast for Yankee-Central, Killadelphia, is immeasurably worse that what I nee on NOAA for San Antonio. And as that quack of an OP began this thread I'd like to kindly suggest that he bow out the remainder of the week. thankuverymuch

NEVAH!

btw, was in Temple. Tx last few days and they had a similiar storm roll through last night. It knocked out the water treatment facility, and the mayor declared a "disaster". Meaning there was no water to fight fires, etc..No restaraunts were allowed to open this morning (which sucked for my planned Mcdonalds Flapjack run). and only convenience stores and grocery stores were allowed to open. All of the VFD's had to bring their tankers full of water into the city and place them at different city firestations just in case there was a fire.

Other than that, no, we have not been very , hot. It's been slightly cooler than normal. It seems like everything has changed and the hotter weather has moved northeast.

You're actually comparing a town of 60,000 to a metropolitan area of 5.58 million in terms of a giant storm?

I just talked to my "sissy" Tina in Fredericksburg Va, They had a Tornado blow through and rip up a Dance studio and several other building there. Her house had some shingles torn off and a tree down on the dog pen. Seems I may be helping John with repairs around the house when I get there after AMG  ???

We used to call that place "Fred Vegas" when I was in college, because when you drive up I-95 from the south you see that strip of large, lighted signs and it looks like a sorry version of Las Vegas at night.

It only took AEP 11 days to restore all the power to our county.  This is quite remarkable considering the extensive damage here in central and southeastern Ohio. 

These storms were so destructive that the Ravenswood bridge had to be closed due to twisted beams.  All we lost were shingles and some trees so I'll not complain.
