RE: Bad Ice Storm coming to Northern Vermont
Well I made it through the night and still have power, but everything is all iced over. Many are without power. Ours may go out before the day is over. But at least I had a great night. 9 hours of sleep with AHI of 0.6. ;-)

Why not do a test Lukie? Take a nap, and have someone pull the plug on you while you are asleep so you can see for yourself what it feels like? I for one wake up RIGHT NOW when that happens...

I turned the machine off with the mask on and I could still breathe. The Quattro Air is great for getting the mask off quickly or releasing the hose so you can breath. I love this mask.

My point is to recreate what it's like when you're asleep and the power were to go off. That way you'd have first hand knowledge.

RE: Bad Ice Storm coming to Northern Vermont
So far the electric is on. Power is out all around me and the Red Cross has set up a shelter in the High School. The weather has calmed down so I figure it is better to stay put than to wander around on icy streets with downed power lines. Half the trees are snapped by the ice which is about an inch thick.
