- What I do for a living: I work for a power utility.
Fortunately, I work in the warehouse, so I usually do not have to go in when there are outages, and if I do I usually do not have to do anything which is life-risking (other than driving among people who predominately have never driven in more than an inch of snow without completely losing their minds).
Unfortunately, I am on standby for these weather emergencies, and if they call me I have to go in. In the past, it has sometimes been for shifts longer than 24 hours and even when I get to go home, it's only for a couple of hours to sleep and clean up (and on at least one occasion, I did that at work, too). And they have certain websites blocked, so I cannot login from work to keep in touch and let people know what's going on.
If you need to hear from me, you can send me a PM and I'll get a copy sent to me via email (and my subscriptions are on daily updates, so I'll see something after midnight if posted there). My wife is Jewels7, so if you hear from her saying that it's from me, then it is.
Hopefully I typed all this for naught. And hopefully y'all won't be affected, either.
But just in case....
