And We Are Back

OCT 30 2012 BY STAFF 10

Due to a little Hurricane Sandy crisis of our own, we momentarily left the interwebs for awhile (or 24 hours).  But have no fear, all our electronic equipment has been dried off and we should be fine (and online) from here on out!

All the best, and well wishes to those affected by the storm.

Yeh like when school was closed due to snow when I was a kid.

Lyle had to move his server from the basement to the attic!

Man – I hope you guys are all alright and not affected too

much by the storm!

Are you sure the outage didn’t have anything to do with the Tigers getting swept?

…I don’t want to talk about that, (=

Glad to hear you were prepared! Two things that do go together – generators and EVs —- hmmmm, like Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and Chocolate bars – those EV guys that tow a small genset in a trailer…. We had a freak storm in Seattle a few years back – winds that were otherwise around 60mph were near hurricane levels in my neighborhood due to topography layout and a funnel effect. Our power was out for several days in the ‘burbs and I seriously got caught with my pants down with no fireplace in the house and electric heat! With two kids to take care of I zoomed off and found the local Honda shop with a line out the door for generators. They price gouged me double for a 5000Watt unit but I’ve been very happy to own it as a power backup. We have tons of trees here and the power goes out a couple times per year. It is strange, however, that when you buy one suddenly the power stays on for YEARS! – It’s like washing your car brings the rain showers… I can attest for the Honda unit as it’s reliable and hums along without… Read more »

On the bright side they don’t have to worry about fois gras, Big Gulps, or salt poisoning any more…. just sayin’. Silver lining and all…
