    How do you deal with the loss of electricity.
    A generator? Propane or Natural Gas?
    Too bad a Prius can't be used as a generator.

    Deal with it, I'm sure you do.

    Really.

    With after purchase changes or "plug in ready" from the factory?

    Just a couple 110 V plugs or a big one that can be plugged into the house?

    BTW I have a Generac natural gas powered generator. Automatic.
    Got it way back before they advertised on TV.

    You mean a portable, not built in.
    Mine was $10,000 plus twice a year servicing.
    It is wonderful being the only home in the n'hood with lights.
    I have a thing against liquid fuel because when you need it, it may have "aged".



    You could just get a Prius and see if Freddyjack is accurate.

    There is a bird chirping this morning as first light hits the sky. Haven't heard that in a while.

    Have you considered a diesel generator? Fewer problems with aging fuel.

    Natural gas has not failed in America since the great San Francisco E'quake.
    And if I did not feel so secure with Natural Gas, I would probably opt for Propane.
    No liquid fuels that may, over time, go bad.
    And when you are pushing 70, one knows - Time Happens.


    There have been days when my Natural Gas Generac generator ran for over 24 hours
    and it doesn't really appear on my Gas Bill as badly as the Hot Tub in Winter.
    I do not know how many days a tank full of Propane would last.
    Apparently longer than powering my hot tub in the Winter.
    Sometimes I wonder if my generator hijacks natural gas not going through the meter, but it does.

    April Fool's Day is upon us that for some wonderful reason
    is the same as "their" - Easter.

    March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb
    yet so much weatherfulness unshared across the E.A. Nation.

    Well I ain't gonna share mine
    Well, manybe - - -


    Although 3 sorts of forgotten spinach seed have sprouted.
    I mean beyond the 2 blades of grass, sprouting. Big Leaves identifying which of 3 kinds.
    Broadleaf, wrinkledleaf, and on a stalk, supper market style.

    Re: There's Always The Weather

    This is the third time this spring that a hillside in the Pittsburgh area has started to slip in the rain.
    Three "landslides" thanks to wet ground and quite a few houses and apartments rendered unlivable.
    More rain tonight.

    We have gone from cold gray and dank to some sun, rain, warmer, colder, snow, 65F, rain, storms, lightning, you name it...it's Mother Nature has turned around and forgot her Prozac or something. The storms today have been hellish. We got 2" of snow on Easter, it was near 70 today, now it's storming again and my backup power supply for the PC just blew her guts. Into the pond she goes!

    There's a thunderstorm going on and I'm wandering the house with a camping lantern hoping the power doesn't go out.

    We have just finished getting 6 inches of snow and the temps are running 20-25 degrees below "normal". That last part is specifically for Paolo. --FLO--
    Condensing fact from the vapor of nuance.
