Hot hot hot too fricken hot… maybe some rain later.
And humid. Soaked to the skin, and brains boiled working in the back yard yesterday. I did find some shade under a market umbrella, and that saved me. Did I mention it was hot?
After working on my gennie for a few hours, since I was soaked through anyway, I cut the grass. It was overcast and a bit cooler anyway. I still love that Toro battery mower.
We spent the evening celebrating D1 becoming a teen. That will probably be the last time we’re happy about that, LOL. Didn’t get time to play any games yesterday so we are supposed to play some today. AFTER the clothes shopping.
I”m going to finish the gennies, if I can. And go through the stored gas to see if any of the stuff in the cabinet also got ruined. I did discover a point source failure, potentially. I use a hand pump to move gas around. It’s a cheap Harbor Freight thing, but it works really well and it lets you quickly transfer gas from a heavy can to your gennie, or suck all the old bad gas out. I’m going to get 4 more, put two at the BOL and leave the others here. I will dedicate one to water, and have the other for gas. It’s so much easier than holding 5 gallons in the air while attempting to control a pour into a small gas tank. Recommended.
So USE some preps this week. Find out if you have what you need to make it work, or not. And stack it up.
