Wicked storms today !

We got blasted with high winds,60-70mph, lots of tree's down, no power. Wow I have not a storm like this in longtime that hit such a huge area.

I am posting this from my phone, not sure when power & internet will be back on.

hopefully everyone is okay.

I lost my storage shed(metal) due to large limb falling out of TALL tree. I promptly moved my race trailer so nothing could get to it as it's parked next to shed.

It was getting BAD yesterday about 6pm and had me concerned with all the old trees surrounding my property(close to house and garage). Really want to get them trimmed back BAD now!

Whole surrounding area schools closed today, lots of limbs in roadway, NO rain. I still had power, though it flickered alot last evening.

this is really beginning to suck big time.......still no power hfphm
h electric guys come out look at the tree that tookout the power lines, they say need to get the tree guys to cut it first, then the tree guys go we need to have power guys remove the power lines before they will work....arrrggg

do not get me wrong I am thankful for all they doing....but......lets both get on the same page.

oh well tomorrows another day.

garypettengill is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I understand where you're coming from. I open the doors and windows of my house because the weather is so nice and all I can hear is chain saws. Huber Heights sets on a rise and we got hammered pretty good. We still have traffic lights not working and the schools just started back today. I consider myself extremely lucky through all this. I had just done all my grocery shopping on Wed. before the storm and because I knew Ike was going to pummel the price of gas I had ensured all 3 vehicles were full of gas. My neighborhood is young, my house is 8 years old, so we don't have any big trees close to houses and all the utilities are underground. We never lost power but some houses did suffer wind damages i.e. siding and trim. The severity of the winds caught everyone by surprise. It didn't help that the big electric companies had sent so much of their manpower and equipment to the golf coast to help out there.

WAAAAAHHHHHH!! Use your pinkies! lol

Did you get power yet? Luckily my power came back up late Monday. I had to help pull a weather vane/ cupola out of one of a neighbors convertable. It was destroyed. Of course my work never lost power... dang diesel generators.

Married life is going great.

Did you get power back yet? I know in the Cincy area there are small pockets still without power.

I got power back last night finally, but cable and internet are still offline , but hopefully that will be back today.

I feel for the crews for all the work that has yet to be done.

it would not have been as bad had dp&l had done the preventive tree trimming over the years.

get this, the want increase rates to cover the storm damages. yea right...........

Duke has been doing the preventative tree trimming... the crews they have just destroy the tree, but yet over90% percent in the greater cincinnati area still lost power.

Just waiting to see what Duke will do to recoup their costs.
