Day 5 update: We got power back! YAY! Dudes shimmied up the pole, strung new wire, 30 minutes later the house hummed back to life and we were able to kill the constant noise of the generators all throughout the neighborhood.
5,622 customers still without power.

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers, For he today who remains without power in shall be my brother, Be he ne'er so vile, this day shall gentle his condition, and gentlemen in England now abed shall think themselves acursed they were not here, and hold their manhoods cheap whilst any speaks, that fought with us upon St. Crispin's day!
27,000 of us. Our numbers are dwindling.

Greetings from generator-powered Internet, where 66K folk remain without power on day 3... I cancelled my trip out west, will spend the 2 weeks cleaning up the down trees... country life: so relaxing!

huh. I don't know about the Fediverse from the perspective of your instance, but from mine is still mostly sex workers.

Fascinating that searching Mastodon for turns up nothing but travelling sex workers...
