winner3000 blames all brownouts on the EPA
Maybe most of the rage should be directed toward so-called environmentalists who want to send us back to the stone age.Peter from Rutland knows anyone who relies on government electricity is a pussy:
These stories make me recount the ice storm of December 2008. We were without power for eight days, no generator (since solved) during a time when the temps never got above 20 degrees. I went through almost 2 cords of wood that week.ProtectOurFreedom knows the EPA is going to kill our electricity in a well thought out plan to vilify themselves:
These people are whiners.
abianice agrees that generator ownership is what separates the producers from the parasite Obama voters:
Utilities across the country with coal being a large fraction of their energy mix are planning load curtailments and rationing.
EPA is turning us into a third-world hell-hole with unreliable electricity.
I tend to lump such people among the Occupy crowd. They have had many power outages in the past. They know they will be without electricity again and again.WestwardHo is also prepared for a return of the 1880 tech level:
So, did they prepare by buying a generator for such times? No. They’d rather whine and place blame elsewhere.
They lost $400 worth of groceries this time. Three such outages over three years and they’d be out the cost of a brand new 6000 W generator which would run their entire house with a few sacrifices such as using only one stove burner at a time.
These people are Obama voters.
We lived in an area that experienced ice storms and power outages every winter.
I filled our old, oversized freezer half full with bags of ice to save energy.
The next ice storm was massive. Power was out for over a week. All our food was saved because of our oversized ice chest.
We left the area, and greatly downsized after our kids left, but I continue the same practice of keeping lots of ice, just in case.
For the same reason, we have a woodstove and gas cooking stove.
The days are upon us when we all have to be as prepared as possible to take care of ourselves. We knew a physician who did not know a gas stove burner could be lit with a match...simple things.
