So after almost a week, our neighbor got her power back. When we realized Con Ed
employees were babysitting her downed power line 24/7 it struck me they were
using a lot of manpower to make up for not having a qualified person to spend an
hour hooking her back up. It turns out I was being conservative, because I went
out to walk the dogs and she was still in the dark, but when I returned 45
minutes later the lights were on and the truck was already heading home. I just
remain thankful we avoided that tree... it probably would have prompted the
purchase of a generator.
Why? So we can build up Mars and then destroy it too? If we destroy our planet our species should end right then and there. Anyway, if/when Mars holds any value then there'll be missiles trained at it also.
