We had a big storm blow through last night and wiped out power all over the area. There are pockets that still have power but for those of us with none, there isn’t even an estimate for when it will be back. Luckily we have a generator. Unfortunately, I had to drag it from our storage area, up a hill, and then it wouldn’t start. I also couldn’t find a hose we needed for our propane heater. I was annoyed.
I think it was my fourth try, I changed a setting on the generator and it coughed. That was the first encouraging noise out of it. It started a few tries later. Thank god. But then I had to pull out the extension cords and set them up. My back was killing me but I got it done. Then I tried to find the stupid propane hose. No dice.
After a failed run to a few stores looking for the hose or another heater, I tore the house apart and found our smaller propane heater. Score! Now we should be set. We have the wood burning stove, the generator and the heater. Oh, and the TV. Almost all the comforts of home. A shower would be nice.
