Thats what the weather guessers say, might be worse than the "blizzard" of '93.

Won't ride in that sort of weather.

Back up generator ready to go, fresh service, 100 gallons of fuel in the tank a spare 55 gallon drum close by. I'm ready as I can get.

Stores appear to be out of bread and milk already.

Glad I'm at home, not on the road working like some of my co-workers.

It's bad...they said it's gonna drop to at least 55deg tonight.

Should be back up to 70 tomorrow....I hope I survive the night. :histerica :histerica :histerica




Seriously, hunker down Gunny...stay safe! And don't forget about carbon monoxide dangers!!

15 tonight, up to 34 tomorrow and then the "blizzard"

It won't be a big deal unless we get ice which might take down the power lines.

No carbon monoxide danger, genset is properly installed in its own shed not attached to the house. Worst problem is the noise from that air cooled diesel.

Guess I could get up early, fire up the LT and head south ahead of the "blizzard".

We were hit with a big wind storm the week before Christmas. Wind speeds in excess of 80 mph and hundreds of downed trees caused us to lose our power on a Friday at midnight and didn't get it back until late Sunday night. It's a great feeling to hear that big diesel genset automatically fire up the second the power quit around midnight. Our lights blinked once, then full on power from that beautiful, smooth 6.8L Cummins. Nice.

Good luck and stay safe, Gunny.
