Geeze. WordPress is so weird sometimes. Anywhooo… . The generator is staged on the covered patio. I have sorted and confirmed my inventory of heavy-duty extension cords, walked though the Generator Network & made adjustments.

This is so freaking stupid. Where am I? One thing is for sure. If there are people out there who really truly need to be told that they need to know where they f-ing are, they are NOT following weather related twitter accounts. Know where you are. JFC. I know where I am down to
