What a weekend!

What a weekend!

WOW!  It was somewhat expected on Friday July 19 but not quite as bad as it got.  WRLO was knocked off the air at about 8pm.  The storm is one of the worst the Public Service workers have seen in 20 years.  As of Monday July 22 many people in the Elcho/Summit Lake areas are still without power including the WRLO tower site.  We are on low power on a generator.  The people working on things are heroes to many.  They working countless hours and come from all over the state to work at restoring power.  The issue with this storm is it knocked out so many “networks” as they put it that it takes time to restore it all.  Thank goodness we were all spared any injuries or worse!  Confirmed tornadoes in the areas and very high winds caused so much damage in such a short time.  Obviously, we will get thru it and be up at full power soon.  For now, let’s just be thankful as it could have been worse.  Those not affected…thank you for your patience.  I think I would have rather seen a big snow storm than what we got. Wait, did I just say that????

So with so many of our Classic Rock stars passing away do you find yourself starting to think a little more about it than usual?  I remember years ago not even thinking about it.  Somehow it has a slight impact as of late.  With the passing of Eddie Money I actually deleted the Series DVR…read more »

Dan Rather interviews ROCK STARS?

Dan Rather interviews ROCK STARS?

It’s called The Big Interview with Dan Rather.  NEVER would I have thought these would be interesting.  Nothing against Dan Rather but I just never saw him as a rock fan nor someone who has been in the trenches of Vietnam that would conduct interviews with rock stars.  I gotta tell you….I was wrong.  These…read more »
