Storm Report

We got hit pretty well from the storm. I woke up Monday morning to the grid being down. Rain and wind were heavy. My house battery bank was topped off so it wasn’t too big a deal. Surprisingly, the grid was back up by noon. I was impressed. 

Our regular internet service was also down. However, we still had a cell phone signal so the phone became a hotspot for the computer. That came back around the same time as the grid. 

The rain, and snow melt from 50+ temperatures caused significant flooding. While our house was fine, we gave up on going anywhere. Roads were flooded or washed out in all directions. 

It’s good to have a well stocked pantry and my own backup power.
