Entry for October 07, 2008

We had some rain today, and a power failure that lasted a couple of hours during the early evening. As soon as the sump pit was full, I decided I had waited long enough so I ran some extension cords into the basement to run the sump pump from the gasoline-powered generator. As soon as I had the sump pump running off the auxiliary-power, the utility company restored our main power. It works that way almost every time.

Recently, Syd in Kentucky was out of power for six days. As soon as he paid $800 for an emergency generator and got it home … you can guess the rest.
