He's...Where are you located Dan?
Cheap insurance, relatively speaking.That sucks re: the busted pipes. It's not so much the pipes, but the water damage they can cause. Up where I'm at, I try to drain the water from the outside hose bibb before freezing temperatures set in.
I am glad I got a portable inverter/generator. It's only a 2800 watt unit but it is enough to run the furnace and refrigerator, a handful of LED lamps, some USB chargers and my networking rack. Of course, now that I have it, the power won't go out...
You know it. I couldn't run a full house with it, but it is enough to cover the necessities.Cheap insurance, relatively speaking.
