In an attempt to avoid another catastrophic event like the one we Texans had to endure in February of this year we are making plans for a whole house generator. We are looking at a Generac Guardian 24kW system. It will require propane so we need to have a propane tank installed. It will run everything we need to run in case of a power outage as long as we don’t try to run everything at once. Not a problem.
It will be three to four months before we can have one installed unless we get very lucky. Our electrician ordered ten of them and has only received two so far. In the meantime we have ordered a Honda portable generator that will keep us up and running with essentials if we have another power outage like before. It’s gasoline powered and when the Generac is installed we can either sell the portable unit or take it out to the farm for our daughter and son-in-law to have a backup, backup generator.
We are continuing to enjoy gorgeous Autumn weather with windows and doors open and fresh air chasing dust bunnies out from under the furniture. I’ll play catch up with the dusting and sweeping tomorrow. I’m on a roll with my knitting and enjoying the sampler scarf…finally got started on the next mini skein.
I’ve got a bit of a Doctor Who theme going on there. Exploding TARDIS bags, mug and bookmark. I really, really want to finish the fifth mini skein, only two more to go. I wound them together, end to end, in a center pull cake and started with the center. I’m reminded of how I prefer to use the cake from the outside. Had a rather spectacular yarn barf just as I started with the fifth mini skein. All better now though.
I’m off to the chiropractor in a bit. He’s really doing me a lot of good and I’m going to keep up with the weekly visits until our new beds arrive. The dryer just beeped at me. I have shirts to put on hangers. Have a blessed day, ya’ll.
