The power here at Shadowland has been out since the storm on Friday. Now they are saying it will not be back on line until this Friday. No damage, no Internet and by 3pm the 100 degree heat has worked its way into the house.
I’m no prepper by any stretch but can offer some wise advice for anyone, anywhere: Get yourself a gasoline generator of at least 7500 watts and keep three days worth of gasoline on hand. The purchase will seem unwarranted until you are in a situation like we are. We’ve had one here for two years; best $ 1000 We’ve ever spent.
Looks like we will have a hot 4th. We do have plenty of ammo so it looks like we will celebrate on the range which will be about the same temperature as the house – but of course, we cannot shoot in then house.
