But my brand new generator is not cranking out any power to speak of.
I have called the contractor, but no one can come out to check it for me. They are all very busy.
Great. I plan ahead and the plan fails. Don't know what to do at the moment except leave the freezer closed and hope for the best.
The Boys have enough water for a few days. After that??? There are power outages all over and we will not be on the top of anyone's list to be restored. There was a tree down on the wires down the road. I doubt that the electric company will deal with that as a priority.
Bummer indeed. I figured I was all set. Now I am at square one with a huge financial investment and nothing to show for it.
On the bright side, the storm has passed and while I do have some huge tree limbs down, the rest of things are fine. The house and barn are OK and while the Boys are a little spookier than normal, they too are fine. So all the important stuff is all right.
More of the saga later. I am on battery power and I don't want to use too much up.
