True. During our last year's storm...power out for 6 days, they didn't turn off gas. Those lines are deep underground...same with water...so I'm optimistic.

Peyton, one generator could keep a few houses heat going. So, if it was me with generator, I'd give power to neighbors, but only make offer to stay with me to hot, desperate women. Does that make me a bad person?

ahh, thanks for the clarification. went and saw a changing of the guard there in Sept.... did a little reading and it is truly incredible what those guys sacrifice...



Quote:
They must commit 2 years of life to guard the tomb, live in a barracks under the tomb, and cannot drink any alcohol on or off duty FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES. They cannot swear in public FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES and cannot disgrace the uniform {fighting} or the tomb in any way.

After TWO YEARS, the guard is given a wreath pin that is worn on their lapel signifying they served as guard of the tomb. There are only 400 presently worn. The guard must obey these rules for the rest of their lives or give up the wreath pin.

The shoes are specially made with very thick soles to keep the heat and cold from their feet. There are metal heel plates that extend to the top of the shoe in order to make the loud click as they come to a halt. There are no wrinkles, folds or lint on the uniform. Guards dress for duty in front of a full-length mirror.

The first SIX MONTHS of duty a guard cannot talk to anyone, nor watch TV. All off duty time is spent studying the 175 notable people laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery. A guard must memorize who they are and where they are interred. Among the notables are: President Taft, Joe E. Lewis {the boxer} and Medal of Honor winner Audie Murphy, {the most decorated soldier of WWII} of Hollywood fame. Every guard spends FIVE HOURS A DAY getting his uniforms ready for guard duty.

On the ABC evening news, it was reported recently that, because of the dangers from Hurricane Isabel approaching Washington, DC, the military members assigned the duty of guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier were given permission to suspend the assignment. They refused. "No way, Sir!"

Soaked to the skin, marching in the pelting rain of a tropical storm, they said that guarding the Tomb was not just an assignment; it was the highest honor that can be afforded to a service person. The tomb has been patrolled continuously, 24/7, since 1930.

Depends how powerful the generator is

You're probably in one of the safest places around, though I think I might consider finding a good reason to get down! Still, it better be made to hold up to over 100 mph winds wouldn't you think?

You have to have a very cool view!

View is incredible. Tower can sustain to like 120-150 knots or something like that.

Well, Erin Andrews is one of them, but that's pretty self explanatory.
