Default Re: Well, it's almost that time of the year again.

Four years ago we had an ice storm which killed power for 10 days, beginning in early December.
We have a generator that runs all the essentials, so were OK.
But, one house in town also had a generator that was big enough to run the essentials, plus his HUGE Christmas light display.
So, here he was, on a dark street, with thousands of lights blazing.
The newspapers and local TV (if you had power to see it) were full of people griping about how 'selfish' this guy was:
"He should run cords to his neighbors."
"He should turn off the lights to save 'precious' gasoline."
You get the idea.
I liked it.
