Hello to all:
I hope you are all doing well. Well we lost power before 9:00 pm.
Since then I have set up a small generator OUTSIDE, barricaded by 2 50 gallon or so drums and a small sheet of plywood. It is sitting on a rubber mat at least 1/2" off the steep up from the sidewalk mostly under the overhang and plenty of breeze with the exhaust aimed away from the house. I think it is safe and we have gas /fire /smoke detectors but I will stay awake while the wife sleeps and work in shifts.
The Good So Far:
Refrigerator / Freezer Working
Cell Phone Charger Working
One Computer Plugged In, One on Battery
Online Due To Cellphone Hot Spot
Electric Cat Box Operating
70"+ T.V. and Satellite Still Working. Found 60+ Channels Most HD on Free T.V. I just set it up tonight for when Sat goes.
Super Bright 40+ led desk lamp lighting living room and kitchen.
The Bad So Far:
Power out all over South Florida
NO A/C I’LL Be Working On That During the Daylight
Getting a little warm for my tastes :shock:
One Cat Bolted out of The Garage BUT She Lives Outside and Will Come Back When It Gets Nasty Enough
I wish you all the best and lets keep in touch. What else do we have to do.
