Good to know, never ran it for more than 4 hours or so just long enough to heat the house/cool the fredge/freezer and flush the toilets. Took the 450 out a litle today and saw alot of people sitting on their porch. Looks to be awhile before those south of here get taken care of. Still lots of trees and debris around on the roads.

For the first time in the 14 years I've lived in my home, the power is out for more than a few hours.

Lost everything in the fridge and freezer. It's hotter than hell. We are at my brothers house doing some laundry and enjoying some A/C which is especially since the missus' allergies are officially going completely nuts. I feel bad for her.

This officially sucks moldy ass cheese, but at least we can get beer and ice at Giant Eagle.

Stay cool, those of you in the same boat as us.

Steveb126 and I spent a few hours today riding around in Knox and Coshocton countys looking at the storm damage. Looks like Apple Valley got hit the hardest from what we saw.

Just the seats, feels pretty good when the house is cold. That and the well pump works better with electric.

Huh, I'm used to gravity, being a city boy.

From the weather, looks like it's bearing down on Lancaster as we speak. Can hear the thunder in the distance, can't wait...

Swing if you're online give me a heads up on your weather. We're about on the same line. I think the worst is south of us. Good luck

If any of YFF's are in dire need of a generator, drop me a line. I have a spare I can lend out, it's just a 3500w Robin, but it's better than nothing.

Got back from my brother's and we had power!

Yay!

Turned on the A/C and something wasn't quite right.... The blower motor is dead.

Damn.

Then the power went out again before this new storm rolled in.

Double-damn...
