At least I have OTA locals.
I will be flying out to your location first thing tomorrow. Hopefully they can at least get the snow pushed off of the runway by then
I am still waiting for the first big thunderstorm opportunity to point out to my wife that the TV still works. Of course, you should really turn it off during a thunderstorm....
In terms of the conversation above with regard to getting FiOS TV is you aren't a Verizon landline customer: I cancelled my Verizon phone service after getting FiOS internet and switched over to Vonage. It is amazing how reliable a VoIP service can be when you have this much bandwidth. Not perfect, but reasonable given the price. When I called the first time to get FiOS TV service I was told, despite the internet and an express letter telling me I was eligible, the it was not available to my address yet. I found a nice post on dslreports that stated the same situation, and identified a probem Verizon was having with people who has Verizon phone service when they first signed up with FiOS but didn't when they tried to order the TV service. Basically, their system was erroring out for some reason based on this situation, and the workaround is for the rep to define a new account for you to order the TV service under. The FiOS internet and TV accounts may then be merged after the fact.
Just wanted to bring it up in case you run into this.
