Running on GENERATOR Power

Hi Everyone,
    Frankie's MOM here...    Yesterday we had a  ONCE IN A LIFETIME WEATHER EVENT...

WE HAD SUDDEN 82 MILE AN HOUR     WIND....       IT DID NOT LAST LONG... APPROX.20 MINS.   BUT NOW THERE ARE OVER 1/2 MILLION ELECTRIC CUSTOMERS IN CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST OHIO   WITHOUT POWER.         
    WE ARE RUNNING ON GENERATOR POWER ONLY ... AND DARNED HAPPY TO HAVE THAT BIG BEAUTY RUMBLING AWAY IN THE DRIVEWAY...    HOWEVER... IT IS NOT GOT TO RUN A COMPUTER ON GENERATOR POWER... SO I MAY NOT BE AROUND MUCH UNTIL POWER IS RESTORED...

WE ACTUALLY CAN SAY THAT..... WE HEARD THAT FREIGHT TRAIN SOUND...
    THERE WAS NO TORNADO BUT THIS WAS        WILD.        
I WILL try to answer   IMPORTANT Email...    
As I said... the weather talkers are saying that THIS was a ONCE in a LIFETIME thing.   
    I have green beans to pick and can today... and some SLIGHT (fortunately) damage to try to clean up.        SEE YOU WHEN I CAN....     Frankie and Ernie say HI Everybuddy.

Good thing that you are all safe and sound and have back-up power. I know you were all so very brave when that wind blew thru.

Keep safe and don't worry about us. We'll be just fine while you take care of your stuffs over there.

Hope the green beans weathered the storm (no punn intended)

Hugs,
Lily Belle

That sounds scary! We had something like that here a few years ago and the sound is unbelievable. Glad you are all safe and have that backup power.

So glad you are all okay. Hope your power is restored soon but happy you have a generator to help. Enjoy some non-blogging time together. :)

Hi friends,

I just heard the news and stopped by to check in on you. I am glad you are all OK. Stay safe.

Your pal, Pip

The Army of Four said...

So thankful you all have a generator! We've heard about the derecho (wind storm) that ripped across parts of the country yesterday. Sounds like it did an awful lot of damage - esp. to power lines. :(
Stay cool -
