It appears that Elsa has made her way into the Carolinas, where she will continue to be a nuisance for a couple of more days. Nothing much going on in Hurricane Alley frright now, and we'll take that as a good men.
Yesterday, second son came over, and we completed the installation of a generator in the shop. My shop is a refuge inn more ways than one. It's a place where Belle and I entertain, and it is set up fr hospitality. It's more of a party house than a traditional work shop, and we use it a lot. The best part is that I can power the whole thing (except the electric range) with a 5kw generator.
Now, with the generator wired, is is simply a matter of flipping the main breaker off, flipping the generator breaker on, and plugging the generator into a four-wire outlet on the outside of the shop. I can run lights, and AC, and the fridges. The generator won't pull the electric range, but I have propane options for cooking.
Because we are ready, we might not need it, and that would suit me just fine..
