I’d Like To Thank the Guy…

Who invented the generator. AND the guy with the foresight to install a big one here at our house…

We’re here. Half in the dark, and with a tree down across our road, but still alive and kicking. The sun isn’t up yet, so no other damage assessment…

Gotta make this short – with the power out to a big part of the Island, the internet is iffy.

The 4 O’Clock:

40 mph sustained winds, gusts to 65. Heavy mist and seaspray. The rains came overnight…

Hope all is well with the rest of you, and things can get back to normal soon!

    • We’re good. I took my son to work across town a little while ago, and the rest of the island doesn’t look bad…Didn’t go all the way down to the water in Newport – it’s probably worse, there.
      Stay off the lakeshore today – hope there’s no problems for you!

      • Glad to hear that and hope it continues. So may are without power and I hope they keep their cool.
        All’s well here. The wind is fierce but that’s nothing like what’s happening around you. I’ll be heading to The Lake in a couple minutes with a friend. 25 foot waves are pretty rare around here and I’d just like to see them. Neither of us is foolish enough to get too close. We’ll stay a safe distance away. Heck. Who am I kidding? We probably won’t leave the car. πŸ™‚

        • I kept thinking to myself, while watching the news coverage, that THIS might be the storm where one of those local reporters was actually swept away on camera…
          Didn’t happen…
          Hope all is well out your way!

  1. those 40 mph winds are dangerous but liveable it is when they gust up to 80 and 90 that you are in trouble, and I bet it is not warm this morning either. I hope the urns survived.. we have a generator too but the three phase power is in the chook house of all places.. so it is not a popular machine. c.. ps Alfie loves angels but he doesn’t like people to know, he is 12 you see! c

    • The worst thing about those winds is the way they weaken the trees…and they blew for 24 hours straight. When the gusts come, the trees snap.
      Our gennie is hardwired into the house panel, and it kicks-in automaticly when the power goes out. Doesn’t run the whole house, but enough that life can continue normally.

  2. Good to hear from you. Take care, How did Angel make it through the howling winds and rain. I thought about her along with the rest of you yesterday.

  3. Glad to hear you’re all okay! We got lucky here. No power outage. I was up most of the night listening to the loud, gusty, blustery winds, but that’s a small price to pay to be able to say “all is well.” πŸ™‚

    • She was fine, until the power went off. Her room isn’t hooked up to the generator, so she had no lights. It took a few minutes to get her calmed down…
      When the power came back last night, the first thing she did was to run flip every switch in her room – just to be sure πŸ˜€
