It snowed yesterday. It snowed quite a bit. It’s October and I’m pissed off and without power and hot water for almost 24 hours now.

It was predicted that we would get between 8-12 inches of snow yesterday afternoon and into the evening, and as I’m sitting next to a power outlet on the floor of a seldom visited strip mall, I can’t help but wonder why the hell didn’t the power companies prep better? Playing chicken with Mother Nature has never proven well and the end result is over 117,000 homes and businesses in Dutchess county alone without power. I will also add that I believe the latest count including Dutchess and surrounding counties, is about half a MILLION homes and businesses without power. Also the latest bit of gossip is that this could take between 2-3 days to fix.

Happy Halloween...
