Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Warmup Begins

Week before last, I was about to call a plumber for a minor plumbing issue, that has been ongoing for a few months. Nothing serious, more of an annoyance. I guess that call will wait! I have some Pampas Grass that my late husband had planted, just prior to his passing. I'm not sure if those plants w...

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Warmup Begins

I know there has been previous discussions/speculation about Snow events following active Hurricane seasons. I am curious to know if anyone has looked at Snow Events as a pre-cursor to an active Hurricane Season?

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Hard Freeze Warning ⚠️

Fingers crossed this will be the last "Hard Freeze" of this event. I've got just about 1 more night's worth of energy to get up and run faucets, every few hours. I feel like I have a newborn baby, without the cuddles of having a newborn baby...This Grandma is getting too old for this! :D

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Hard Freeze Warning ⚠️

Now seriously thinking about a natural gas or propane generator. Am worried about the cost but... Mine was about $9k...in 2008. Because, we are on a well, when the electricity goes out...we also lose water. After suffering through several Hurricane aftermaths, I took the plunge and got one installe...

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Hard Freeze Warning ⚠️

Did you lose power with a whole house generator? We are thinking of purchasing one.
No, mine automatically switches over to running on propane. Because we are "rural", we don't have city utilities (water, natural gas, etc). So, ours is Propane. Honestly, one of the best investments, ever.

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Hard Freeze Warning ⚠️

Starting to Snow, again...let's hope it remains snow. We really lucked out with the Ice. All of the pine trees were very "frosted" and just starting to droop, then the sun came out and temps warmed slightly. I only lost power yesterday, from about 8:00 am till right at 8:00 pm. I have a whole house ...

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Winter Storm Warning ⚠️

I haven't read ALL the posts; so, ignore if this is a repeat. Be sure to remove any water/sodas/food from your vehicles! I am the world's worst for leaving a half empty water bottle in my truck's cup holder. Starting to see some "baby" icicles from my roof. Yall stay Safe & Warm! :)
