About this Hunkering Down

Thanks to my ability to schedule things in advance on the blog, the movie trailers will continue even if I don't have power here.  Thy're already scheduled into October.  I have no idea if there will be any other blog content over the weekend, but if all goes extremely well, maybe we won't lose our power.  Fingers crossed.

How ridiculously expensive is a decent generator, these days? One of the few decent features of the building I work it is the quality of the generators...crossing fingers and eyes for y'all.

We've been discussing generators for the last several years. The problem is that we live in an all-electric house. We'd have to get a gas meter (gas company), have a gas line run to the house (plumber), and then get an electrical contractor to install the generator and wire it into the house's electrical system. Coordinating all those people has been too much for me.

I'm about to leave the office and head home to make preparations on my house. I got spooked with Rita since it was my first hurricane as the Ward Cleaver of my family. This time, I'm just moving forward, determined to make it through. I live on the west side in the seeming middle of one of the hurricane tracks. Yay. Big fun.

See y'all on the other side.

Good luck, Scott. In fact, good luck to everybody in the path!

Stay safe, Bill.

Glad to see you've got the really important stuff covered.

Stay safe, Bill. Best wishes to you and yours.

One more drop of good wishes from the northern sector. Keep your powder dry, Bill.

Benjie said...

On second thought--forget the powder, and just keep dry yourself.

You can bet I'm gonna try!

Bill, when we were with an electric company that would go out two to three times a year, we had a small generator that would run the refrigerator and a fan or light. It didn't take care of the whole house, but it made life a little easier. It ran on gasoline so we had to run cords from the garage.

Stay safe.

I may have to go that route, Livia. We'll see. I'd sure like the big one, though.
