No my silly dear internets I’m not going to tell y’all how much electricity the solar panels are producing, although they are…too bad we are using soooo much of said electric power to run the AC. I mean really, it is like way too hot here. At our house it was 109 degrees F. Oh the F, for my other country dear internets, stands for Fahrenheit.
Ummm really this post is not about the solar, no it is about the lack of electricity. So there we were all settled in to watch TV and some UStream one bright and hot ozone laden afternoon… no it was more like evening or dinner time, only I was so not going to cook. Cue windy digital music, y’all know the kind it blows in and out sorta wavy like. Yes, well Beloved was surfing and watching Two and Half Men. Baby Girl was sit/laying on the sofa watching Beloved surf and watching the TV. I was sitting off to the side in my comfy Cindy Crawford – lady stylish – rearback chair, watching Ustream and the TV (I can sooo multitask) When all of a sudden the wind begin to twitch and the cable began to pitch and my laptop screen dimed and I felt someone staring at me and just how many times can I use the word and in one sentence. (laughter is permitted) Then sorta all of a sudden again…
The generator kicked on. Hummm that’s funny I thought. I looked over at Beloved and said, “Why is the generator coming on? Did the auto run cycle get changed?” Really that is what I said. Beloved laughed and told me, “No the lights went out.” Well bless my stars and stripes I was so In The Zone I didn’t even realize it. Really I’m sure y’all understand…
There I was all comfy with ear buds in, chatting and laughing at something I typed while watching ikerrilove stream. I suppose because I have a little battery life and the phone line didn’t quit, well I never missed a beat.
What? I didn’t tell ya? Yeah, y’all know how my beloved likes projects, well he had this whole house generator installed back at the end of June. It took a while as the contractor didn’t get permits before the work and then they used the wrong kind of wire…Not really the “wrong” kind but the type that is not allowed “Per Code” in our city. Once all that was taken care of, we passed the final inspection and we recently we had our first true test of success.
Beloved is determined that we will be okay if a hurricane should come to Texas again. Speaking of hurricanes I’m glad my dear internets up the East Coast are okay and I know that y’all are praying with me for the quick and full recovery of all the states and Canada where Irene caused havoc.
And that leads me to surmise that I suppose y’all could say we are prepared for disaster, well that is as long as we don’t get flooded. Humm wonder if that is gonna be Beloved’s next project? Y’all know to build a boat and now that makes me wonder too…what kind of permit will we need for that?
