    I am stuck in Shanghai on business and am scheduled to fly home on Halloween. Bothers me that I am not there for my family. I've a 6500W generator and installed a transfer switch last year. Works great. I posted instructions on 'what to do if we lose power' all over the house. I asked my wife to fire up the generator for a dry run before the storm hits. Have 5.5 tons of pellets, a chest freezer and fridge full of food and 3 kegs of homebrew. All that is missing is me.....

    So are you supposed to batten down the hatches or get the snow shovels, snow blowers and leaf blowers or all of the above? What advice are you guys getting over there. Please play it safe and best of luck.

    Well considering where I'm from, we never really unbatten the hatches or put away any of the outside equipment such that we can't get to it quickly. My snowblower has already been set outside, checked over, had its gas tank filled and an oil change, the leaf blower is a year round tool, shovels are always by the garage door, the generator is always ready to go and just needs to be rolled out of the garage, started, and the house plugged into it. Got a larder full of stuff to eat (second nature to a bear ;)) and enough bottled water to get through at least 3 days. Once the generator is running and the house is warm and the fridge and freezer cold I can throw a couple of breakers and draw some well water. No big deal.

    Here in PA i think we are going to have an interesting start to the week. I went out and have 8 gallons of kerosene for the lamps and heaters and 10 gallons of gas for the generator. I just got all my surge protection done last week so it was just in time. My neighbors are scrambling trying to find last minute things. The neighbor girl made me some chicken pot pie tonight so she can come over and stay warm the rest can fend for themselves.

    I'd rather move your apples and taters than the 4 ton of pellets in my basement :eek:

    With any luck Scotty, maybe it won't have an eye by then....
