Yeah, I've heard them announcing that on KTLA for awhile, bummer for those who have direct, I love KTLA! Someone, somewhere mentioned Charter was also going to stop carry Channel 6, anybody heard anything on that?

Heard that this morning also. They are advising those with Direct to change providers or get an antenna and pick KTLA off the air

I knew about it and even called Directv the other day. They really don't care what their customers think.

I was bummed when I turn on the TV this morning and my news wasn't on. I'm pissed off and thinking about going to another provider.

I love the KTLA morning news and would suffer with out it. I am glad that Charter doesn't have the same problems as DirectTV does.

Yep...my favorite too! Tomorrow morning is going to suck without it. I'm going to give it a couple of weeks and then if it's not on then...bye bye

usualy they settle these at the last minute We don't get KTLA down here in our local pack but I wish we could. I'm still happier with direct then others I see.
Is Ch 5 available on the internet?

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

I miss my KTLA. But it's all business which means its all about money. We can't get cable and I know TOO many folks unhappy with Dish so I guess we're stuck ....or do what we do more often these days and pull it off the net! :-)

I have a friend who's experimenting with some solar, at peak those dozen panels put out a scary amount of power, big issue is storage for use at night. And looking at a book on solar tech there's a heckuva lot to learn far as battery types and how not to fry them. For the time being Ill stick with the woodstove, kerosene lights, and century old proven low-tech to get thru the powerless times. Really the hardest part was a (very) cold bathroom in the morning, and trying to read a book by lamplight . I can easily go more low tech but all this has gotten me through two really brutal a winters...

Yes, my dream is someday to cut that ugly line that comes into the house. The technology is there but the costs haven't come into line yet, but they will. Part of that equation would be having a natural gas generator.

Too bad Edison won't let u run on these commercial generators . You have to be on the grid.... Edison isn't rich enough !

The house is on the market. I had a couple today look at it . It would say they were in their 60s. The really liked the idea of having that generator .

On my Gas bill no joke it showed an extra 1.20 for the generator. We lost power in RS at least four times a day for almost two weeks when we had our big storm!

Cinderella. What was your natural gas bill when it ran for several days? Of course the Edison bill should be small.

Today, my tribal name is Burning Throat. My so called friend Blowing Wind, and his buddy, Pollen Dust, are pick on me.
Hopefully, I don't turn to Running Nose or Watery Eyes tomorrow. (The kids on the street would have a fieldday teasing me.)
