I used to live in Houston,Tx and we could not get Coors back then. We used to have to make "runs"
back then. But Lone Star beer and Busch was fine for me.

Hope you get your power back soon. I hate when my power is out. Luckily, it does not
happen to me much. No hurricanes or tropical storms in Missouri. Just tornados, LOL.
The grid needs to be buried, then storms do not effect.

All the utilities are underground in the south portion of Orange County. For electrical that is local service, secondary distribution and most primary distribution. HV Transmission lines are on poles, substations are mostly outdoor on grade. It makes a big difference in reliability. However partly because of the cost of undergrounding we have some of the highest power rates in the nation.

Well, I was back in the hospital again Sunday, heart problems. I'm now wearing a heart monitor for 2 weeks. Growing old sucks!! If and when that e-units sticks, spray it down with CRC contact cleaner, non-flammable type. It will free it up from any gunk,etc, it may pick up...and thanks again for asking about my health problems, it will get better..The wife is starting to worry about me..Loren
