1/2 of Maine has no power
« on: October 30, 2017, 05:20:41 PM »
 It looks like tons of power outages in Maine from this past mega storm and winds. I am guessing it will take at least all week to get power back. If anyone knows where there are stores open anywhere near west of Augusta let me know. I have a friend in that area that is probably going to be suffering a bit soon ..

Wife lost power at work for a while and the electric company is running a lot

I haven't even heard about this storm... (I'm in NY, but still it's not that far away)

You should teach them how to have some supplies on hand for such events. :facepalm:


Little aggravates me more than hearing a friend say he ,or she,has to stop at ????? to get something to eat on the way home. What a waste of time and $$$$ when you can shop once or twice a month and save time and money...and doing without during a storm.
