Watching the Tropics

 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..

Better to have planned and not need it, and all that...

I'm probably preaching to the choir, but remember to use fuel stabilizer and rotate your stored fuel.

And a plus one to what Old NFO said.
