Default So my powers out ~

Looks like I best start getting ready for winter ~ Nice thing though, the wife knew where the lanterns & flahlights were, & my cheap Costco prep of the "car charging station" is now powering my phone.... I'll call it our mini practice run

Why do you need lanterns and flashlights at 0200?
Save fuel and batteries, sleep during the dark hours.

Lol ~ We're creatures of the night! Lights are back on now, just a reminder to get my butt in gear! Got a few cords of fire wood that needs to be gathered, split & stacked! That & get the generators all up to snuff ~ Winter will be here before I'm ready!!!

Probably something that's best left for the daylight hours

Reminds me, when I serviced the back up genset maybe a month ago, I noticed the block heater wasn't warm. I thought it might be because it was too warm for it to come on. It has chilled substantially at night here, all the leaves are beginning to turn, I better get that block heater checked and changed if needed.

Winter will be here before we know it... I am going to miss summer.

Did you Exclaim "its happening!" then fill the bathtub with water and tell the wife to get in the fallout shelter and start opening the MREs?

Just kidding! It's good to find a pencil and small pad to note how to be better prepared for the next part outage such as what's working, what's not working, and what could be improved to make things more comfy.

Simple solution to device charging during blackouts. Buys you a few days.

Don't just fill the tub with water, fill your WaterBOB with water, a little more sanitary for your drinking water.
