Oops, I Missed The First Of The Month, But Have You...
Test run your generator? (Over 90 hours on it in the past week)
Rotated you gasoline stores? (Rotated it right through the generator)
Tested your smoke and/or carbon monoxide detectors?
Checked your household and vehicle fire extinguishers?
Given your dog his heart worm pill and flea/tick treatment?
Changed your HVAC filters?
Test run all your small engine equipment? (Chainsaw is working great)
Checked your belts, hoses and filters on your vehicles?
If you are in the market for a shop vac, several Lowe's around here have a big 16 gallon wet/dry shop vac on closeout, marked down to $49 from $99. I picked one up.
Our freezer out in the shop is officially dead. I went to clean it up today, and it had not completely refrozen everything, despite running for the last 48 hours. Like I said yesterday, it was about 25 years old anyway, it is an upright, not a chest, so about the only thing it has left to be good for is as a smoker. I don't really have the interest in doing that myself, but I'll see if anyone around here wants it. We're definitely going to save up to replace it. I know a chest freezer is much more efficient, but I can't get around the idea that whatever I want will invariably end up being on the bottom. Any suggestions for organizing a chest freezer?
Looks like Katia is going to go ahead and miss CONUS. I really hope she makes that turn, otherwise she might follow the same path as Irene. Maybe if everyone on the East Coast blows real hard at the same time....
