It Happened Again
Midnight... There's a monsoon raging outside, but we're sound asleep... until the doggone power went out again. It shut down the fans and my CPAP machine. It was raging too much outside for me to go outside and fire up the genny, so we tried to make do. Five hours of restless, poor sleep later, the alarm clock goes off and I went outside to fire it up to get the hot water and well pump ready for showers. Sure enough, the power came back on just a couple minutes later.
I really need to figure out another way to run my CPAP without firing up the generator in the middle of a storm. I'm thinking either a deep cycle marine battery with an inverter, or a jump box such as the Wagen Power Dome EX. Some reviews are great, some are awful, so it looks kind of hit or miss as to the quality of each individual unit. I think I could probably get three or so hours of CPAP power off of it, which would at least get me a little good sleep (and let my wife get some good sleep without me rattling the plaster down with my snoring).
Any body out there have a similar situation?
