Congrats. Kinda gives you an appreciation of our frontier forebears, doesn’t it?

I’m trying to remember how many times we’ve been without power in the years I’ve lived in Spokane. I’m guessing five or six extended periods.

The worst was the ice storm in 1996. My South hill neighborhood was without power for over a week. My wife and I lived in my office at Gonzaga that entire time.

It was quite pleasant, actually — the studnuts (as we affectionately called them — probably a hate crime today) were gone for Thanksgiving, and all was peaceful and quiet.

I spent a LOT of quality time at Jack and Dan’s, as I recall...

When we were out for nine days in the last windstorm of 2015, we’d just bought this house and had torn out the main floor to remodel. We were essentially camped in the master bedroom for a few months. We were lucky enough to find a hotel room.
In our cabin up on the Priest River where we lived for almost 14 years, we were set for pretty much anything. We had solar power, wind turbines, a big battery bank and a huge generator. Not so much in the city.
