“…and in some of the hardest-hit regions, slower dial-up internet at possibly Fredericton levels.”that would be a bad hurricane…
My sister in Amherst lost her fence, and power, but is otherwise OK,We survived well here in Windsor Junction - 14 hours without power, and now back online again.
Generator and chainsaw available on call for someone who needs them. Send me a message.
I heard Toronto is declaring a state of emergency.
163 hours and counting. The NEW estimate is another 77 hours before power is restored. Our generator has already burned through 1090 litres of propane. NSP, I don't want to pay for a second delivery before winter. /rant.
If it helps, this morning my brother in Cape Breton was looking at a Wednesday restoration estimate from the NSP website. He got power back mid afternoon today instead. Don't put much stock in the website or the map for those estimates.163 hours and counting. The NEW estimate is another 77 hours before power is restored. Our generator has already burned through 1090 litres of propane. NSP, I don't want to pay for a second delivery before winter. /rant.
At the start I understood and was patient. I pre-planned and thought we were ready. I even placed propane fuel reorder early, a 14 day delay for delivery. I never considered the requirement to plan for armageddon level of failure.
Frustrating. Government advice of 72 hours preparedness is a minimum. We are looking at 11 days.
Twice now, neighbour's estimates get pushed back, then NSP robo calls at 2300hrs to inform us our estimated date has been readjusted to match our neighbour's new date.
