Enjoyed PineTree's commentary. Doubt the folks without electricity are finding it amusing though. Thanks for the laugh.

    I wish the power company had a portable power system that they could hook up to let people have power until the problem is fixed. Like big generators or something

    Well with the Power out and not much to do on a weekend the Birth Rate should be better than normal in 9 months.

It's all the roots from the marijuanas. They weaken the trees and our youths work ethic.
