SNOMG update


It's sleeting at the moment, on top of the several inches on the ground. They're saying it's going to get very worse overnight. They're also announcing power outages in DC because of the wind and heavy snow/ice, so I'm thankful we decided to pick up the camping gear last night. And why are they calling it "The Blizzard of 2010?" There's still 10.75 months to go. What if we get another one at the end of the year? Stupid news crews.

Also, the TV keeps going out. NEVER EVER EVER GET SATELLITE TV. EVER. HATE.

Satellite TV is great. It just doesn't like weather: I remember when I was in VA and we had to go clean the snow out from around the dish to get signal back. :)

If I can get everything I need from cable, we're switching. We lose signal in a light rain, and I'm really fucking tired of it.

just snow here. and umm Aren't you a SCAdian? shouldn't you already have built in camping gear like some Medieval Borg. shouldn't your house already have all this stuff like mine. i mean Jesu Buddha. you live near a coast. emergency camp gear should be all over your domicile and you live near DC. i would have a basement stocked with everything to survive weeks without power if i were you.

First, I do have all that stuff, but it's in storage in Slippery Rock, PA. Second, losing power on a somewhat regular basis is relatively new for me - I never had this problem in Philly, and only had it over the summer during the rolling brownouts in San Diego. This place is a fucking DUMP and I want to LEAVE.

Well now I'm glad I have stuff at hand, too. The heater, though, is going to Pennsic with me. It's a catalytic heater, which is specifically designed to be used inside a tent. Whee!

We originally went with DirecTV because they had one channel that the local cable company didn't - LOGO. I'm going to re-evaluate and see if they have it yet, because if they do, I'm switching.

Several bloggers have referred to this as snOMG, which I think is a hoot. :D
