Power outage.Posted: August 22, 2009
Around 4 am the power went out. It is now about 10 am and the power is still out. How am I posting something to the ye old blog you ask? All thanks to my Generac 13Kw Stand-by home generator. Yeah baby! While the neighbors are in the dark, with no TV and wondering if the power will come back on before the steaks thaw, I am enjoying a little Top Gear on the DVR. The generator is powerful enough to run the major systems in the house-the well, the oil burner, air handler, and all the outlets. We pretty much have everything except central air, stove and microwave. Yes kids, even the kegerator stays cold. When the power goes out, the generator automaticly starts and then the power comes back on, automaticly shuts itself off. What sparked this purchase was the fact when the power goes out-we loose water in the house because the well has an electric pump.
