So that was a pretty random and powerful "land hurricane" last night wasn't it??!
Who else doesn't have power? What should we do?

Keep the surface water agitated with a wooded spoon or something similar to disperse gases and oxygenate the water and you should be ok

I live in Fredericksburg too. My power wine tout and is still out. The worst part is I leave for a week long vacation tomorrow. I hope my power is back before I have to leave my tanks.

I'm up off route 17 near the geico building. I was able to find 2 battery powered air pumps so that will help them. Was quite a trip to get them though.

Oh ok, you're across town from me. We live in the Lee's Hill area. I know what you mean, as if our traffic wasnt bad enough on a normal day, Just going to Lowes which is about 2 miles took me about a full 45 minutes this morning. Hope your power is back on!

Traffic was pretty bad today while I ran to all the pet stores around here looking for the air pumps. Unfortunately my power is still out. But if it's not on before I leave my tanks should kick on by themselves. All I know is first thing I'm doing when I get on the boat tomorrow is taking a shower

Yeah I'm in PG county. Whole city of Bowie is dark. I've been just using a red cup and scooping water and then putting it back in a couple of times every hour or so. Seems to be working. How about that wind though?! Jesus!

Richmond Va area here. It was a rough storm but luckily the power did not go off. I lost 5 fish that were at least 14 yrs old when the last hurricane came through. Got to have a generator.
