christain: Damn-crazy. It was really weird here. :o Aug 20, 2019 2:14:50 GMT *
LG Martial Arts: And the worst thing is that both units in my house won’t cool below 78 Fahrenheit even at night since the units are over 13 yrs old. I’m probably going to have to replace both units before next summer. Aug 20, 2019 2:06:59 GMT
christain: I dream of the times of cool wind, dark nights, and bright fire. The smell of pumpkin candles and incense, maidens dancing in the nude, meat roasting on the fire...then I woke up and realized it was my ol' lady in a nightgown and Hamburger-Helper... ;-|... Aug 20, 2019 1:43:40 GMT *
christain: August 'lectric bill must gone be a beeyatch...... :P Aug 20, 2019 1:22:36 GMT
christain: As I said...my nice, cool arse is worth it. :D Aug 20, 2019 1:18:33 GMT
christain: That's awful, LG. I thought $175 for July was bad... :o.... ;-|.... :P Aug 20, 2019 1:14:53 GMT
LG Martial Arts: it's been so hot in Deep South Texas, my upcoming home electrical bill will be over $500... next month's bill is expected to be around the same according to weekly "snapshots" from my provider. Aug 20, 2019 1:00:37 GMT
christain: $300 is like...1/5th of a good Albion. :D Aug 20, 2019 0:05:47 GMT
christain: Sign me up! :D Aug 19, 2019 23:33:29 GMT
nerdthenord: Ah. Good start to the week! Got selected for a focus group that will pay me 300 dollars for 12 hours of mock jury work. Aug 19, 2019 23:21:25 GMT
christain: Well, I guess the 'energy crisis' is over...for now. O_o The AC is blowing and my sweet arse is cool after an 8-hour day in a metal building.:D Maybe later, I'll suit up in my darkened armor and go for a run. :P------- (rofl) Aug 19, 2019 21:40:51 GMT
ouroboros: Cruddy deaL. Our last big thunderstorm/tornado took out power for us for 2 days. Luckily I've got Jenny the Generator n Lucy the industrial cable snake Aug 19, 2019 14:33:29 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: We had this once when a construction site in the neighborhood sucked much power. Some house units did work, some not, some very strange. Aug 19, 2019 4:04:36 GMT *
christain: Major power fluxes and outages wide-spread all across N.E. Texas, and a big explosion and fire at a Eastman facility in Longview, Tx. :P Aug 19, 2019 1:05:31 GMT
christain: It was just sooo weird. ??? We each have lamps on both sides of the bed. Hers went out but mine stayed on...and they are both plugged into the SAME wall socket?!?! I used to work in the electrical business, and I've never heard of such. ??? Aug 19, 2019 1:02:13 GMT
nerdthenord: We get those sometimes in the hell days of summer. Aug 19, 2019 0:53:59 GMT
christain: Oh wow...We just had an electrical 'brown-out'. That's never happened here that I remember. Weird thing is, some of the lights went off, others didn't. Dish TV went off. AC shut off. Everything's normal now though. Happened at my sister's next door too. ? Aug 18, 2019 22:20:59 GMT
ouroboros: N I could almost buy a small airship with what I'd save :) 95$ off Aug 18, 2019 15:10:21 GMT
ouroboros: Now all I need is an airship! Aug 18, 2019 15:08:45 GMT
