Photos and Haiku for 28 December 2022

Woke up to darkness

Power to fridge and heater

Ran generator

When I woke up this morning there was no power.  Fortunately, I keep a portable generator in the house and not out in the cold shop so I was able to get it running after a few attempts.  I put it outside away from the house so no fumes would get in and ran an electrical cord through a window and into the house.  Even with the generator running on eco-mode, I was able to get power to the fridge and a space heater.  Eventually, after about 5 hours the power came back on.

  1. I’m losing faith in our energy producers to keep the lights on so have been thinking about and researching whole house generators. In the meantime I did some research on our gas fireplace and discovered I can run it in a power outage with a couple of batteries. So, I’ve printed out the instructions, and have them near the fireplace. I’ll be sure to keep some batteries in the house too …just in case.

    I’m glad you have a generator on hand to keep you warm!
