Still no power at home, but today I saw the first utility trucks working on our streets, also saw a team clearing trees who were from Idaho

Still a lot of work to do around here

I don't have a generator here, but I've been able to weather week-long power outages pretty comfortably. When I can find an old-school single cylinder Lister diesel generator in good condition, I'll install one and hook it up to run off of #2 fuel. Unfortunately, generators of this sort were once available and fairly cheap. They sip fuel. The EPA decided they didn't smog, and cut off import from India and China.

Here's a base line: have a solid fuel stove to keep the place above freezing. I burned wood for many years, but now burn anthracite coal. I have a little stove in the living room that will burn for 24 hours on a five-gallon pail of the stuff and warm the house. Coal is readily available, takes up little space, and doesn't go bad within our lifetimes. Wood is a different issue.

I keep a gallon or so of kerosene on hand. You can live with a few kerosene lamps and a gallon of fuel for a long time. A good source is for lamps www.lehmans.com.

Keep the pantry stocked as well as you can. Even if you don't, most of us can live a long time on our fat. Have good clothes and good sleeping gear available. If you've not well fed, you will be cold.

Your government won't help you much. This is something you need to decide to do yourself, whatever side of the political spectrum you fall on. Common sense used to be pretty common.

It's not that easy,,, basicly you can salvage a boat and it's contents by taking possession. This gives you "possession" but not ownership. Then you must contact the owner or owners. This can be individuals, corporations, banks and insurance companies, any and all. A negotiation process can now be entered to claim ownership. If you sell any of the property before you are awarded ownership, it will be considered theft.

Spoil sport. What about just parts of the boats? Like, say, I was concerned about the oil leaking out of the engines and polluting the environment?

vtwinp, we have an environmental emergency on our hands! What's the lat/long of the boat pictured above?!? PM me!

My ex brother in law had a similar set-up. He claimed he got under 4 mpg. Better check if they've left their gold card on the boat. You'll need it.

justme said "I've been considering taking a trip to NYC or jersey.. I wonder if there would be enough tree work left, to justify going..."

They've been hiring tree crews from all over the country, got any experience with getting trees off of power lines?

Seriously, Long Island Power Auth. still has 160K customers without power. You might want to contact them or Con Ed, which still has 90K customers in Westchester without power.

I could have used your services myself, cut up 6 fallen trees yesterday on my property in Westchester. I'm sure there are many others in the area who don't know which end of a chainsaw to hold. Thousands of trees down in Westchester.

This snow is still bringing them down here on the island so you can probably scrape up some work.

We also have the transformer light show going on again.
