Mr. Pinko is back!

Hurricane Sandy Day 6 – Just got back cable and internet. Still no electricity – running on generator $$$. Gas is scarce. Damage in the area is extensive.

Have I been fired?

    I think this counts as vacation time, doesn’t it? So at least you’re probably not fired.

    What’s the voting situation? Will voting precincts be accessible by Tuesday?

    @Mr. Pinko, you aren’t fired, but don’t you start thinking it is a paid vacation!!! ;)

    Seriously, though, do we need to hit the tip jar for you guys back there?

    Welcome back, Mr. Pinko. I haven’t read anything here about you being fired, although there were some statements about “job abandonment.” The folks here sure run a tight ship.

    Correction: are your cupboards well-stocked? (as your refrigerator will be of little use, w/out electricity)

    Hey, Mr. P! Good to see you!
    Good thing you were smart and had a generator, but I read that you can only get 10 gals. of gas. And they had the nerve to criticize Bush. Ha! Idiots!

    I don’t think you’re fired, but better play it cool for a couple days….no long lunches, etc.

    Generator running fridge – got food this time.

    The biggest threat is running out of gas for the generator.

    Looking at the devastation on Staten Island on television. Horrible.

    We got lucky. No house damage. A few people (3 from the last count I heard) got killed with trees hitting their homes.

    @Mr.Pinko

    Put a couple of gallon jugs of water in your freezer. That will save the food in your fridge for a day or better if you run out of gas, provided you don’t open the door too often. Leave air space at the top of the jugs so they won’t burst when they freeze. I do it all the time when my power goes out, and it goes out any time lightening strikes within a half mile of my house.

    Thanks for the tip Unruly Refugee

    @ Bad Brad – just need a few prayers for those that got hit real bad and a few extra ones that we don’t get hit again on Wednesday.

    I’m fine – as for Ms. Pinko – I don’t ever want to get stranded on an island with her. She won’t last a day.

    Pinko – Just stay the hell away from the watermelon and you should be just fine.

    Glad you and the wife are doing okay. Think your power bill will go down for the missed days next month? Nah, me neither.

    ps – Spacely is still holding on to your resume. Just in case….lol.

    You know it’s funny, I read the comments and we have genuine concern, practical advice, offers to help, all peppered with humor.

    How is the water supply in your area?

    See, Al G was right. If you had Solarrr or Wind power you would be OK. And get rid of that SUVee so you can’t drive out of there.

    So glad that you are OK! I’m upstate NY, it’s snowing here this morning, and about 30-ish degrees, so I’m guessing many people down your way are going to see conditions get worse fast if something isn’t done in one fat hurry.

    Mr. Pinko. Look like it’s going to get pretty cold.If the powers still out hopefully you have a fireplace. If push comes to shove the best Burn Barrel we ever had at the Fat Loser Duck Club was the drum out of a wash machine. Produces a lot of heat. Don’t put it inside. Mrs. Pinko sounds quite a bit like Mrs. Bad LOL.

    Having been stranded on farms due to snow and high winds (2-4 days usually, with no electricity and just a kerosene heater) we can relate to your situation. Glad to hear that you, Mrs. Pinko, and your home made it through with little “damage”!

    Stay warm and safe and well beered-up, M’Lad!
