Trying to Figure out the Utility Situation Here

So I have just started to sort out the power company and internet options here in this location. Of course the public utility commission of Texas allows you to get your choice of electric company and so that is a big deal, except that is something which is usually not that easy to figure out. You are going to have to figure it out if you want Reliant or some other power company for example. It is hard for you to tell a big difference from one to the next so far as I can tell. You have to see what is best for you and it is probable that one is not a lot different from the other. I would reckon that the big thing you want in a power company is for your power to be reliable and obviously there are going to be problems.

This is near the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and you are going to have hurricanes. That is going to knock the power off and the question is who is going to answer the phone if you call up the number to say your power is off. Of course it is going to matter where you live and how many people get knocked out. There is going to be some situations where you are going to be lucky and others where you are going to flat out of luck. Say there is the once in a century hurricane like Katrina. Of course there is not a lot that can be done quickly if you have that sort of event. It is just way too catastrophic and the power company can not work miracles when they have damage to tens of thousands of their customers. You want them to do what can be done obviously.

How Much Will a New Roof Cost Us?

Jack, Payton and I spent the day looking at this building we really like in theory. Of course there is a big problem with it, because it is old and it has not been well maintained over the recent period of time. We think that it has been sitting vacant for about three years and before that the roof had not been replaced on the schedule that it should have been. We are waiting to hear back from a guy who does commercial roof replacement in Bergen county NJ. It is pretty difficult to think about what it might cost us to get it fixed, but we know from the building inspector that it has to be done and he seems to think it has to be done before you can occupy the building. The problem could come the next time you have a huge snow storm like the ones we had one after the other last year.

Snow is heavy and if you get enough of it you are going to lose any roof. Of course a lot of people use snow rakes to try to pull the snow down off of the roof tops. That is not something you can do with a flat roof this size. In fact this roof is probably about as big as a football field, or close to that size. You get something like six feet of snow on a roof that size and I guess you must be talking about hundreds of tons of weight. I am sure the formula is easy to figure out, although there is snow that is light and fluffy and there is snow that is wet and heavy. So it is not obvious that if you get six feet of one type of snow it will have a certain weight.
