I spent from 7:30pm yesterday until 1:00am this morning without power, for what seemed like little more than a regular thunderstorm. It’s no wonder so many houses in the neighborhood have those generators that kick on automatically… while I wait an hour in the heat and then sweat as I drag the portable generator out of the garage and string up the extension cords.
I don’t mind though… the $300 that I spent several years ago has already been covered by the amount of frozen and fridge food that I would have lost had I not had it. The video above… it’s actually from just a bit ago – when I thought all hell was gonna break loose. But with all those churning clouds and lightning, there wasn’t much more than a sprinkle. There’s still more on the way… hoping tonight doesn’t end up like the last one.
