H31N0US: sems740: H31N0US: I also think the HOV restrictions at the tunnels should be made permanent.

You shut your mouth. That would make my biweekly drive from CT to Jersey City for work pretty damn awful.

How so? You could take the GWB and ride down through Edgewater. Which would be doable with less cars trying to get through the tunnel.

Sorry you have to go from CT to Jersey City though.


I've done that, it adds a good 30-40 minutes on to the commute. The West Side highway to the Holland Tunnel is usually pretty quick. It helps that I'm moving the opposite direction of most traffic once I hit Mid-town.

TommyJReed: Joe Blowme: philotech: Lost power again... For farks sake LIPA, get the damn power on and keep it on...

Should of had solar pannels or a windmill on your house.

This Storm has finally convinced me to pony up the money to have natural gas generator installed. Does anyone have any suggestions/personal experience as to which brand is the most reliable?


I'm with you on that one =) I was looking before this hit, but no one had any.

If no power not pump to push gas to your house, you would be better off with a diesel or gas and keep fuel on hand. Or maybe propane?


I have never had a problem with the gas service in my area even when the power was out for a week with Sandy, the gas was still flowing, we just shut everything off because of the electric pilot lights. We already have a small gasoline generator we used for necessities, but that is not a long term solution because we live on the ass end of our town and our power goes out more often then it should. We have too many trees nearby for wind to be practical and not enough sunlight hits the roof for solar.

then redundancy is the key, make sure you get the kit to allow you to use propane tanks as well as natural gas. For heat look into wood burning stove, sounds like you have plenty of fuel arround

yeah converting the natural gas to propane is a matter of connectors,and I plan to have a backup propane tank installed for the generator. we have fireplaces, so heat isn't really a problem.
the lack of electricity kills me because I work from home so I lose money if I don't have power for my computers, and the voltage on a gas generator that isn't hardwired into the houses systems can fluctuate a bit too much for my tastes.

Earthquakes and extended power outages (or widespread floods) will take it out. Otherwise, it is more robust than the electrical grid, and less likely to be out for more localized events.

If you absolutely can't or don't want to deal with gas generators, it's the way to go.

You know Obama inherited Sandy from Bush.

Why are douchbags pushing their defeated political agendas in here? I thought the Politics tab was created for a reason: kind of like a chaff filter for retards.
 
2012-11-08 12:32:14 PM
Why the "Unlikely" tag? There is nothing "unlikely" about this; one of the worst things about Sandy, which I thought everyone realized at the time, was that it was making people homeless, making holes in houses, and taking away heat and power just as winter was setting in.

I'm as much into Schadenfreude as the next farker, but there is nothing particularly amusing about this story.

Generac. Pricy, but worth it. Just make sure your electrician installs a 3-pole transfer switch, or if you get a model with an integral switch, that it's 3-pole. Most electricians will install a 2-pole transfer switch, as it's easier, cheaper, and more readily available. The only problem is that you have to turn your generator off when the linemen come to fix the power, or you shock the nice men on the bucket trucks. Neutral return is a biatch.
