challenges: We lost internet for
several hours on Friday evening. We
had a freak winter storm dumping 7" of
heavy wet snow. Since most of the
trees still have their leaves, there
were many falling branches resulting
in power outages. We lost power at
around 1900z on Saturday and we are
still on our LP fired backup
generator. The power company has
promised to restore power by the end
of the week! All the antennas were
impacted by the snow covering
resulting in very high SWR's. I was
unable to use the 3 stack for most of
Saturday. Fortunately, Sunday was
warm and the antennas all recovered
nicely. The falling trees blocked our
driveway, and I had to spend some time
on both Saturday and Sunday moving
fallen branches out of the way. All
told, I think I lost about 6 hours due
to the storm and cleanup. Never give
up, never surrender!
