Power went out here at 1am, still out.

First test of my generator, have my fridge, cellphone charger, and this laptop on it and it's still running half speed, so I should get a day out of a tank of propane if that's all I hook up.
Let us know how well of a job it does powering your fridge as I may look into one that can power not only my fridge but also my large freezer, and my modem for internet :o

Power back on, the generator worked fine saving the stuff in the fridge, by the time I got the generator set up in the morning the fridge had been off for 6 hours, so it was just starting to go above proper temperatures in the fridge and freezer.

If you are looking to run 2 fridge compressors you'll have to somehow make sure they don't both turn on at the same time, or get a generator that can handle that amount of surge.  Fridges only need about half the power running that they need to start up, so the generator has to have a good surge rating.

Need to find one more person that is getting rid of a propane tank so I can exchange it and I'll have 3 ready to go.

Have had rain in the forecast for the last couple of days including today. Really need the rain as my lawn is starting to turn brown. Didn't get anywhere near the rain that was predicted (got a few 15 minute downpours). Today it's really dark and overcast-like a late fall day only about 30 degrees warmer and really humid-but no rain.

Suggest-a-Trax / Voyage to the Bottom of the sea?
« Last post by RobThom on Today at 07:44:19 AM »
Have you ever watched the Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea TV show?
Especially the 3rd and 4rth seasons where they steered into the gaudy gogo colors of the incoming maniac 60's.

Its not a very good show.
Not even in a campy way.
But its kind of funny in a gaudy not a very good show way.

I was watching the Abominable Snowman episode, somehow an Abominable Snowman is on the submarine.
But when they throw open the door for the big monster reveal, this Abominable Snowman is as frilly as the finest dogshow poodle.
And then as the "plot" progresses (you tell me why a tropical Island is also involved) and he runs well groomed monster rampage around the Seaview,
he leaves a series of victims in his wake in the form of a bunch of guys laying neatly on the floor.
Apparently he got the title "abominable" for being a natsy level neat freak.

BUT, they're not actually dead.
They're just really really tired and can barely get back into their bunks to sleep off partying with the Abominable Snowman.

The food poisoning cases GC has had are the origin of the joke, yes?
Perhaps, but I always thought it was just because the food was so bland.

I've always imagined it's a lot like the Ponderosa--a place my mother took us to when kids.
We went to Bonanza.
