    48 below and no power

    About 15 years ago we had a bad ice storm and the power was off for 13 days. I kept the house running, and a 3 barn, 3300 head hog site running, with a 25KW (Navy surplus), generator. Power provided by a 5 1/2 cylinder, flat head, Continental, GAS engine. At the end of that ordeal, I decided that "home-made" power is WAY more expensive than the "store-bought" stuff. (and a LOT more work) I DO NOT complain about the REA bill anymore!!!!!!! Mike

    That's a snowflake collection, sorted by age and height........ Serious collectors will re-stack them several times during the winter. Amatures just go south for the winter....... Mike

    I have been using 2X6 tongue and grooved, treated from Menards. Pretty reasonable and seems to stand up well. Try to do a time at the yard they will let you "pick u-r own" Mike

    Fuel Rock

    Be sure to put a hidden 'shut off' device somewhere in the wiring, so it don't get used as a "walmart service center" I use an alligator clip to hook/unhook from the battery, and since the hood only opens from in the cab........ Mike
