Listeroid power during Storm-agedon
« on: December 22, 2012, 01:49:09 AM »
Well, power went out at 2 pm, not expected to be back on till 0600.  good ole Betsey woke up on the first spin and started to make power.

Have to follow my wife around and turn on lights, she thinks the generator would like a lighter load, I said no, she is working fine, nice and hot into the rad, nice and cool coming out.... and the Roid is heating the garage nicely.

Im the only house with lights on in the village, others iether have no genny or cant get it to start.

Lights are not flickering, LCD TV working fine, and of course the Internet is there

Will top up the fuel tonight and check her around 11... then set my alarm to check her again at 3... so far she has been running with no issues for 7 hrs

Well she ran without issues till 3 am, then I switched back to Ontario Hydro

Everything was working fine, she is going to get an oil change in the spring :-)

Every time we go through this I have people come by to see it... They all love the simplicity and how really quiet it is.  I cant hear it in the house, nor can my neighbors

and yes, because we have power and she is warm... the wife gives me lots of loving :-)

Its true, a Lister(oid) is great for the sex life

  I've often thought Ottawa was in the dark. ( joke ).
  Lived there as a Federal Summer Student in 1982.
  If the power is out I make a point of turning on every light on the property so the neighbours know they should have prepared and been comfy too.
