    Big storm is moving in....

    Looks like we may get as much as two feet of snow over the next 48 hours so it's possible we may lose power/Internet here - so if I disappear for a day or two, that be why!

    Don't worry. I'll send out a search party to come dig you out!

    I was freaking close to purchasing a generator last night, but didn't.

    I'm sure I will be regretting that decision this time tomorrow.

    You need to get one! Now's a terrible time to buy, though - because everyone wants one and the prices are going to be high.

    I've got a 5,500 constant watts generator and I had the house wired up so all I have to do is plug the thing in, throw a switch on the fusebox (to disconnect me from the grid; this is mandatory safety thing so you don't fry a line worker) and we've got power for most of the house. The generator will run for 6-8 hours before it needs a top off and I try to keep 15 gallons of fuel handy in the shed, so I can have power for about three days even if I can't find fresh gas.
