Well, even if people did lose power before the storm, doesn't it matter where the actually grid is located?


I thought the grid was damaged?

I'm not that knowledgeable on power grids.


...or could it have been a solar storm and the storm was created to make it look like it was the storm's fault?? I know weird conspiracy! lol

That wouldn't explain why DC was hit. If they're going to intentionally take the whole thing down, DC will be the last to go since that's where their power structure is. Northern Virginia (home to many govt agencies and contractors, aka the hub of the Military Industrial Complex) was the hardest hit over here.

I am in DC and, luckily, kept my power. In fact, I slept through the whole thing. I am on the same grid as the Capitol so that helps, my friend just 5 miles to the south loses power for days in every small storm.

I was able to fill up my gas tank no problem. The shopping center up the street from me has been out since yesterday but all I did was drive 5 or so miles to find gas, open stores, no lines. I grabbed two 6-packs of beer from my favorite liquor store, warm dinner and a tank of gas and settled back in at home. It was not mayhem on the streets.

Traffic lights are out and people are acting crazy on the road but other than that, we're good.

We all know if they were "imploding" the grid, they certainly wouldn't go for DC. Many are still without power here and will be for quite some time. It isn't intentional, it's because Pepco (our local power authority) is inept and many lines are still above ground despite this happening any time the wind blows.

Re: WV without power, gas, and grocery stores out of stock/closed?
I find it shameful that some people here will kick those who have fallen down. How about making useful posts or not wasting our time?

For instance, in a disaster area, the area around hospitals will usually not lose power as most are essential services and have specially protected utility services. If they do, government will get them back online first since people would start dying in the hospitals when back-up generators reached their limits. Any businesses near a hospital stand a good chance of having power throughout the event or shortly after it passes. Think food, air conditioning, perhaps gasoline if you are lucky.

If you know of any Asian owned donut shops, they seem to open before other restaurants. I think it has to do with their work ethic and preparation for staying in business.

If a nearby neighbor has a power generator, perhaps he will share an extension cord to your house to keep your refrigerator going. Of course that means you actually have to be civilized enough to speak to your neighbor.

If you have a coffee maker, you can use it to make a pot of steaming hot water. Just put in a filter without the coffee. A properly working maker should heat the water hot enough to kill most bacteria. I don't maintain your maker, so Your Mileage May Vary.

Good luck to everyone in that area. Pull together and your people will come through this.

Now my mother heard from a neighbor that the water plant is being shut down???

I'm in a panic. She has 3 days worth of food...
 Quoting: Starry eyes


They probably dont have good battery/gen back-up for the pumps,your mom should start boiling some drinking water like today.

Water is first thing she should take care of!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18561549


Agreed. Any time there's a big storm or disaster the first thing I do is fill the tub with water out of habit. That's in case the storm makes any more water that comes through the pipes undrinkable or if it breaks the pipes.
 Quoting: skittle


Same here. Water is the first thing to think about, and most people have very little stored water.

Charles Town, WV checking in. Power just came back on. Thank God! It was quite an interesting experience tho. It makes you realize how hard life would become if the power goes out for good. I hope everyone is safe and is keeping cool.

You have no fucking clue. WV is a beautiful state. I have lived here my entire life and I can honestly say it doesnt smell like hog shit unless you are on a farm with hogs. You most likely got a good smell of your own breath if you thought you smelled hog shit.

I saw one guy on youtube put a tarp in the back of his pickup truck and filled it with water to make a pool...Rednecks will survive!!!
I hate it when people say "We are not humans having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience" Like, WTF does that change?

Phen,
here in Germany we had a kinda similar happening this weekend, not too bad, trees/posts down, high winds,
roof damage, things like that; also a few dead including 3 ladies that got hit by lighting because they were ...golfing, yup, storm (+) metal poles (=) priceless.


My point is that this is not an isolated case in the east coast of the US, somethings up worldwide; weather manipulation, solar activity, the jet stream not where is should be, who knows?! All I know is that 2 weeks ago we got record heat and then big hail, then rain then sun again, all the same day, just plain weird.

Good thing is that there is a lot of "closet preppers" here, specially in winter, and this year it's gonna be a long one, you'll see.

political correctness is a doctrine.... fostered by a delusional, illogical minority...... and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media; which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

when a country is greatly disoriented —as it is currently in America with regards to polarization on many issues— that it’s easy for the Government —and other powers that be— to manipulate the public with lies and deceit. This is not a new strategy, but one that has been implemented in this country —as well as others— for centuries. It’s specifically designed to control the masses by generating and perpetuating confusion. in the past the truth about certain national incidents were not found out and revealed to the public for years. Now, thanks to the internet, it takes only a few months to discover the policies and activities of our Government and mega-corporate empires —that are criminal to say the least.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH:
Alan Isaacman
The People Vs Larry Flynt
"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."
