- Pemberton. The hurricane hit us almost dead on, yet all the towns nearby have power even though it's basically forest (huge old trees over power lines) and we also have a low population density. But places in North Jersey, the exact opposite, are all struggling. Before the storm I was positive it would be the other way around. P.S. NY I totally get, flooding was horrible. My folks lost both cars and have a pool in their basement.Nov 2, 2012
- So sorry to hear about that. There is trouble all around us.Nov 2, 2012
- Yea but we're tough here, just another notch in the belt. We'll come out better on the other side. BTW, huge fan of all you do, thanks for the discussion =)Nov 2, 2012
- Although it's rare, we've experienced something similar during earthquakes in California. The power goes out and gas stations are unable to pump... however, it's localized and you can often drive just a little further down the road and find a working station.
True, flooding seems much more devastating and widespread, so "a little further down the road" might be more hazardous and difficult.
It's such and odd scene when people in one area would be foraging for food, batteries and fuel, then we'd get on the freeway, drive 20 minutes, and people would be playing golf and at the mall..Nov 2, 2012
- What I don't understand about this how thing is why is there not backup power are the fuel hubs.Nov 2, 2012
- I was thinking...
Airport FBOs usually have fuel trucks. Fill them with auto gas and drive to the neighborhoods.
(I know. They'd never flush out the lead from the AvGas in the tanks.)Nov 2, 2012
