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.....
Saw last night weather channel, 30 ' swell's off florida now, he's gunna have to go half way to england to avoid rough sea's
Interesting perspective to this storm.
Hurricane Train Party!!
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.
I went under 2 of them, if that counts fore anything.
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.
Unfortunately, the weather map show us in direct path, I am pretty shure you made a good purchase that you will use. Good luck stay safe.
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.
Good luck Boosted and all of you in the path, stay safe
I am in the mountains in the western part of PA, so we will are to get up to 6 inches of rain last I heard, or it could be 24+ inches of snow. I will know for sure by next friday.
Food check, water check, batteries, check, I am ready to rock and roll. I need to get a generator though, that is on my list.
I'm with ya Dave.....right smack dab in the middle of the state. The eye is supposed to pass over or near State College, PA on Wednesday morning. I'm just a short jaunt over the mountain from there........hope my basement stays dry, we have lots of apples and taters down there!!
Good luck to everyone in Sandy's path.........................
I'd rather move your apples and taters than the 4 ton of pellets in my basement
With any luck Scotty, maybe it won't have an eye by then....
I'm in western NY state, calling for high winds and rain. Have kids in Brooklyn & Rockaway, gave them a heads up about the pending storm
Got my genny today, everyone be safe
Good feeling isn't it?
Just sandbagged my basement door and windows. Had water in basement from Irene last august. Hope this isn't as bad as they predict.
Looks like you are going into your third season with your Accentra....any chance you could spell HarmAn correctly in your signature???
How do you know I don't have a cheap Chinese knockoff?
Well it doesn't look like it will burn rice.
You wouldn't stoop to that level....you know quality when you see it..regardless of the spelling.
