As a result of the storms just after midnight we are without power. Except that we’re not. Because we have a couple of generators, and the smaller of the two (3500W) is powering both the motorhome in which we live, and Junior, the travel trailer (in which we travel, and Pete uses as his ham shack, and is our guest house) as well. Pete also has our power station recharging in the sun to keep it topped off.
We live within one of Michigan’s 36 Amish communities and were wondering if our neighbors even know that there is a power outage in our area? I suppose they do by now…Pete chats with them quite a bit and they always seem to have a handle on everything that’s going on.
The power company claims that we will have power restored by tomorrow evening. I am guessing that our very rural area, where most people don’t even use electricity, isn’t a priority for them, but as I said, we’re doing fine anyway.
More storms are expected later today so that would hinder restoration efforts as well, I would think?
I will add any updates to Chia’s Chat Box unless something major comes up that requires a post of its own, so check there if interested.
