A bad storm passed through Seymour and left around 8k people without electricity. Guess who was one of the EIGHT THOUSAND? Yes. Me.
Never thought a generator would make me so happy. There was no damage to the dwelling. With a gas fireplace I wasn’t cold. And with a generator, we had hot running water, a light, and charged phones. Lots to smile about!
The bad news is that after almost 24 hours of no power — and the purchase of a generator — we figure with the cost rounded out to about $100 a toilet flush. The electric was back on about 3 hours after we got the thing up and running. (No, I don’t have some fancy electric toilet — I have 2 well pumps that need power.)
