Over 400,000 people were out of electricity starting Thursday night here in MI.
That's no fun fer us country folk. No electricity means no well pump, no pump.....no water, no water.......no showers or flushing toilets.
I live just upstream from a large dam. We had a record flood the year I moved in. My house is way up on a hill so I just laughed as the others evacuated the area. Then the electric went out.
Needless to say, when the flood waters receded, I was first in line at Sears for a generator.
