Is that a camera on the bottom right of the sign?
Slime, you're famous!
"Frost on the pumpkin" ? How about six inches of snow on the pumpkin?

...and in October !! WTF? Someone please stab Al Gore in the face with a Buick.
And of course, our power is out ... again. And here's why:

13,000 volts of fun! And the best part is, I have to be at work tonight for a service window!
The downside of living in that gorgeous wooded area. We've got tidal issues over here. :-(
So long as the electric stays up so the pumps keep going, we'll be shaken and a bit stirred, but ok. I'm actually starting to consider one of those auto-start natural gas generators, just for the peace of mind. Not that it's affordable, but...
Damned pervect coon-ions. Next time ply them with treats and wood nymphs, please, so they'll keep their tricks to themselves!
That does it. We're buying a generator.
awww... Enjoy the hot shower..
Grr. That sucks, IG. I hope they get that repaired soon.
Yeah, be careful with kid-power. As the child gets older, they lose their hyperactivity and invariably get lazy. Also, hyperactive six-year-old's have a tendency to fall asleep on the spot once they run out of hyper-energy. Do you have a steady supply of hyperactive children or do you plan to find alternatives?
My three-year-old tends to get grumpy long before getting tired....

Are you going to buy a house generator or just a small one? Honda portable generators are fantastic but expensive. They can be used for electronic equipment. You have to make sure they have enough power to run a hot water heater.
Had one in Florida. Got lucky didn't have to use it too much. Mostly to keep the refrigerator running, and if needed to run an air conditioner at night.
We have 100 Amp service so a 12 KW generator would in fact power the whole house, but that takes it way out of my price range.
Think I'm going with an 8kw so it'll cover my sumps. Plus, it's an auto on, so I won't need to worry when I'm out of town. But yes, expensive. But food is over-rated, anyway.
i've seen some which look a little like a fridge, there to power your house & and replace your heating.
I guess I'll work on site prep while we wait for everyone to restock.
in germany it 'd probably be problematic because of taxation.
at least by putting it into your car you're committing a tax crime.
afaik the only difference is the color, which is made by aditiva.
don't know whether one should put it into a modern TDI though ;-)
