    Well I don't think this will be "unusual" for long. I think these new weather patterns are here to stay due to global warming. In Chicago we haven't had a serious winter in about 15 years. Every year for 6 years in a row we have had 50+ degree days in the first week of Jan. Statistically late Feb early March have been our coldest times for the last 10 years when it used to be Jan. I'm not sure how many feet above see level most of you are in Washington, but I wouldn't want to be any less than 100ft above sea level in the next 10-15 years. I'm not saying all that will be under water but some of it probably will.

    Despite this I hope no one suffers any serious damage and hopefully you guys won't be without power again. I'll have my fingers crossed for you. Happy reefing.

    Yeah it's been bad here too and thank god where i live we haven't lost power ( knock on wood )

    I am shure we will rebuild the park better than ever, lots of money has already been raised for the rebuild effort. The storm #14 did even more dammage it looks like the park will remain closed for quite some time.
    so far we have 22 cm of snow on the ground. On the possitive side I had the day off and my daughter and I built a 7' snowman

    28 degrees?... Sheesh, I was just outside and it doesn’t seem that bad yet... Must be the cloud cover. I bet it’ll be a different story tomorrow morning though.

    Cool, it is Wed evening and the power is back on. It was out for 26 hours this time. Fish, Coral, roses and family were all snug and happy but darn that generator is a propane hog. $$ $$ oh well I guess we will spend it one way or another

    Yes it seems a generator is near a necessity with a medium or large reef tank. This has been quite a winter season as weather goes!!!

    "let this be a sign, ita allready starting, more and more people are gonna say something along the line of "Never seen anything like that/this""

    the only reason why people will say is never seen anything like this before is because they havent been alive long enough as in 1000 of years to see that the world works in cycles there was ice ages before we were here
    i dont believe in global warming as such but people dont help the world with all the poloution, a nuclear war is more of a threat imo
