Happy New Year to you and everyone,
My New Year is bound to get better. Last night at the start of the count down for the Times Square ball drop - at 8 seconds to go - the power went out due to high winds. It just came back on about 20 minutes ago. Of course, this was 3 minutes after I got up, connected, and started my backup generator. x(
I will be expecting thank you gifts from my neighbors. Next outage they'll want me to connect sooner. :lol:

We had a planned outage, Jan 2, 9:am sharp.
And they've already planned the same for Jan 2, 2020.

We just had a power outage this Sunday. The kids were misbehaving and we told them no electronics. Suddenly, all power went out. Don't mess with the parents! :lol:

With that much power on tap, I certainly hope you intent to use it wisely. :lol:

To truly be a powerful parent in that situation, Jason would have had to steal the batteries from his kid's devices - and they're probably too old and too smart to fall for that. :clap:

Happy New Year to all!
Jim, I hope you had a heat source that doesn't require electricity.

Not a problem. It's big enough to run everything but not everything at once.

All the best in 2019
Generac works like a charm Jim ! Just had a big outage . No need to start or turn off. Everything in the house runs. It's a blessing.

Years back when I bought it, a local electrician wanted very nearly as much to install the equipment to integrate it into the system as the generator cost. I wouldn't pay that so I do it manually.
Kept in my garage with battery charged, it stays clean and ready to use. (Of course, I don't run it in the garage.) This was probably the first time in the last two or three years it was needed.

But I missed seeing the ball drop live.
So, this morning I watched it on youtube - without any bubbly!
