You burn more gas waiting in line to get gas. The only thing that helps me is I have access to a company car. It is mandatory we fill up before storm then after storm the corporate office will bring in their own gas supply.

I have 1/4 tank of gas and not sure if Im getting some tonight. We have to eat out every night or try to cook in the dark and make one meal that will last because we cant save it

Im tired of noodles , we had hot dogs last night ( halal beef , yum) which was a nice change but a sister is TIRED!

The nearest hotel is in ny that isnt filled and $499 a night......umm

I have taken a sleeping bag and pillow to work and slept over in a dark corner many a time. I soak up their generator. There is a kitchen with a stove and fridge. Only down side is no shower so have to take heaux baths. My job doesn't mind us choosing to stay overnight sometimes because at other times we are required to stay overnight. While it sucks being at the job site that long it could save you a lot of hassle and money. If there is no kitchen then take your George Foreman and you'll be straight.
