Post by PecosRiverM » Wed Feb 17, 2021 11:00 pm

Sorry about not being around since Monday. Power has been shutdown (Wind Energy doesn't work when it's Frozen) because of a shortage.
At my house it went down ~7a Mon., came back at 3:30p Tues. and Back off at 6:30p. Finally on since 1:00a Wed.. :shock:

House gets awful cold w/o computers (or heater) running.. :roll:

Just when you could have used the heat put out by the computers. Bad luck. I am glad your electricity is back on. I know what it is like when we have a hurricane and power is off. Finally after Irma I bought a Generex. It was worth it, the longest outage I have is 30 seconds and then it kicks on.

It's "Rolling Blackouts" at work it's on for ~1 hour then off ~1 hour.. No Bread, Water at the store either. Panic buying at it's best.

Generex (or solar) will probably be next big house purchase now..was going to be the "Kitchen" upgrade. I do have Gas Heat, Hot Water and Heat. So I could cook and shower (with flashlight).

Powerwall! Of course, you would need 20 to run your rigs.

Sorry for you guys, I have the opposite problem here. The Temp is just under 90F and although it is raining off and on, I am sitting in front of the screen with no shirt and only my pyjama shorts as I am sweaing doing nothing. The humidity is just unbearable.

I imagine a huge, solar-powered airco on top of the shed where Pete sheds his sweat
