    And this, folks, is why we do not Fear The Veer. I had never heard of Mountain House.

    I leave it to others to figure out whether that is because I am not a hiker, camper or survivalist or it is because I routinely feast on Brunswick Stew made from critters I have hunted or trapped.

    In CA we don't need to rely solely on hunting and trapping anymore since we can now get permits to use roadkill.

    Y'all need a road and some traffic before there is any roadkill to harvest :-)

    Some of these takes show no visible signs of trauma and by all appearances were merely asphyxiated.

    Antney -

    What state are you in? Here in Maine, we just had a Nor'easter knock out about 200,000 homes.

    hi Charlie, it was the same storm that affected us. actually it wasnít a noríeaster as the winds came from the w nw. there was little beach erosion if any i am on the south shore of massachusetts. power was restored to my part of town after 15 hours. there are still parts of town without. it amazes me why the electric companies wonít bury the lines in highly treed areas...it canít possibly be a money thing. my street has buried lines but the surrounding areas are on poles in heavily wooded terrain. at least it isnít cold yet.

    <veer>I've asked similar questions in Virginia. I get lots of answers and excuses but they include: cost; obtaining easements; cost; interference with other underground lines and pipes; cost; and inability to get the utility commission to approve the financing.

    Off the record, someone shared that it is seriously cheaper to repair an above ground line than a buried one and in most cases faster. So there is a trade off - there may only be one outage a year but it takes 24 hours to repair, as opposed to four outages but each one is less than two hours. The most recent outage that I experienced was not tree related but involved lightning and a transmission station.

    There's more to the cost than just installation. There are a whole lot of bucket trucks that will need to be replaced by backhoes and pole climbers that will need new training and new services to restore landscaping or roadways that are dug up.

    We got power back yesterday as well, so not as bad as weíd been told. Not too bad and yes, Iím thankful it wasnít cold and rainy or snowing when the power was out. Mostly Iím thankful this thread didnít veer into favorite road kill recipes.
