We just got a piece of siding blown off, fine otherwise.

Mr Wonderful:
I had to put my garbage cans in my garage in order to not lose them, one downspout was slightly mispositioned (required a ladder), and a trim piece that everyone runs into with their car kept blowing into the neighbors.

I tested the generator, it should work for heat tonight. We haven't yet gotten the special transfer switch installed (we really need a whole new panel so I imagine it's going to be $$$$ in total), so I'll run an extension cord from an upstairs window so we can do an electric heater in the sleeping quarters.

I am somewhat tempted to use the generator to power my television and xbox so I can ride the trainer and watch a movie, otherwise I suppose I could finish changing tires...

DTE says they hope 90% of power is restored by the end of sunday...

Sounded like fragiles were going to skip Friday pig camping, so I guess this is my compensation.

You can camp whenever however you want.

Teammates are the best! I called Andy to ask if he knew where I could get a generator in Saginaw and 3 hours later he showed up with one and showed me how to get at least the heat, fridge and a power strip going. Luxury!
