101 degrees in Jersey today and the power has been out for sometime now.

Use number 2 for those Hello Fresh ice packs.

That sucks. Good luck with the power.

The garage cannot be the coolest place in your lot to put that, is it?

It sits under a huge oak in the shade, so it kinda is. Bugs also factor into it and there are screens at either end, so, not only is there a good cross breeze, but it’s completely bugless.

Plus, when the power comes back on, there’s a fan, WiFi, tv in surround, my bass (wireless so I don’t have to worry about electrocuting myself in the pool), beer fridge,... I should probably stop...

Ummm, isn't a beer fridge without any electric sort of a glorified cooler w/out any ice?

Welp, looks like I’m on a generator for a couple of days.

Funny thing is it wasn’t even the worst part of my day.

All I could think while they were laying out the tools was, “Is it safe?l

Well, the meds just kicked in, so I might call it a push.

Yeah, I’ve been medicating myself too.  

It’s amazing how much whiskey you can go through when you aren’t leaving the cottage.

It's been unsettled (the weather). It's hump day in a pandemic, so there's no way the good ole National Weather Service would be trying to pump up the masses with a glorious weekend forecast. Nah, that never happens.

My Saturday forecast: Sunny.

Let's see what happens.

We had about 2.5 hours of rain early this AM.  The first rain in over a month.  We are in out 3, or 4, years of draught.  

The times, they are a changin'.  Thanks, Bob.  Love Bob.

Woke up at the lake to rain.  Sigh.  So much for watching the day come to life from the porch.

Aaaaaand..... bright blue skies when I get home.  Awesome timing.🙄

Not supposed to have power until Sunday. Seeing the damage around here, I think that’s optimistic.

On a side note, what the hell are people running while on generator. I have a 1800/2200 watt generator that powers my modem/router, fridge, deep freeze, tv, and a bunch of lights And chargers, and it barely runs above idle. One gallon of gas just lasted me over eight hours.

I can’t imagine how much fuel these people are rippin through with their 3, 5, even 8k watt gennys running at full throttle.

My parents run the whole house including the ac or furnace but they have a natural gas hookup. If they ever run out of fuel the world has much larger problems on it's hands.

New forecast? Partly sunny, 20% chance of showers. It begins.

But Sunday's still a solid "Sunny"!
