Luckily for me I have had the last two days off. Snow day on Thursday because of freezing rain, sleet, and snow. Same for today. The freezing rain stuck to the trees, and the snow came, and stuck to the trees. Then the wind came. And today more snow. About five inches. And the limbs started falling, and kept falling. Lost power about 10am. Came back on about 7:30pm. It was a lot of work today, shoveling, generator stuff, etc.,etc.,etc. But, it was a good test for my system. Generator with transfer switch wired to the following. Well pump, oil boiler w/circs., wood boiler w/circs, refridgerator, lights and outlets in boiler room. The real bad thing about it was the damage it did to our trees in our yard. The branches on the pines were snapping like crazy. Big ones too. The two beautiful white birch in the front yard, that were about 35 feet tall are likely ruined. Top snapped right off on one of them. The other top is literally touching the ground right now. It still has not broke yet. Lost some of it's braches though. It will be a huge clean up job in the spring. I must have lost at least 40 limbs off the pines. I will try to post take and post some pics tomorrow. Glad it is over. I hope. Getting colder tonight and through the weekend. We need some warmer temps now in order to get the ice and snow to melt off the trees and let them get their branches back up in the air. We may loose more with the wind.
