No Power!

Saturday we were busy with various tasks when the power went out. We have a backup generator for just such an occasion (as the chickens cannot be without feed/water/lights/fans). Within a second or two of losing power the generator kicks on automatically. It's one of those things (like insurance policies) that buys us a little sleep at night.

The generator is very loud when it runs, so daughter #2 took this photo quickly and made her escape. 

It is vented to the outside, so we always know by the noise and the flapping exhaust panels that the generator is on. 

We were without power for several hours. We don't often lose power. When we do, I remember why I'm grateful for backup generators.
