Well, litterelly 10 minutes ago we got internet. Still no power or cell service, so the generator is our life support system and now with Internet, we can keep the streak of not missing a day in 11 years going.
But there is of course a fun Woody Boater connection to it all. Ya see the entire Northern Neck has no power. Which means, no fuel to run the generator. I mean NUTH’n. We had to drive yesterday over an hr to fill up the truck and eat dinner. Which of course is nerve racking, since we were running out of fuel and like some sort of flight, at some point we would not be able to return home.
BTW, normally we are very prepared for Hurricanes. But as you all know this one came fast. And because we are in a remote ish area of Virginia, no one really counts on the get the power on schedule.
So. How did we keep the generators going? EXTRA BOATS! And a pump. At one point it dawned on me we had close to 60 gallons of fuel sitting and waiting to be used. Ethanol Free Gold. Now the only issue. Dead Drill batteries. Ugh, if it isnt one thing it’s another.
