I love storms

It's pretty lively down here in Santa Cruz too. That vid really didn't show the worst at all. That's about as calm as I've seen it all day and I'm sure it's much more violent on the ridge.
last winter I was without power for 3 weeks during a pretty gnarly ice storm, i have a 120kw running on a 250 gal diesel tank behind the shop. the neighbors would come over and use the house to make dinners and shower in return I got fed and plenty of favors owed to me. the men would come over and help with my work in the woodshop while the women were inside the house making a thanksgiving sized feast. it was pretty cool. everybody was warm and happy.

I am pretty far off the beaten path though. low priority when it comes to utility emergencies.
