I momentarily lost my buddies ring at the ceremony. Many years later he told me he wished I had. Don’t hit your husband on the head with an encyclopedia while he is cleaning his 45 auto. Anyway she became the dearly departed, didn’t die, just departed.
There were some clusters up in the trees in Fairfax County. Its actually a parasite I’m told and protected.
never saw it before, ok by me
We have a program in Saskatchewan called FireSmart . Our community has a lot of deadfall in undeveloped parts of town, raking the forest may sound extreme but the concept is valid. My target is metal or stuco siding and a metal roof. It will protect me against embers.

The Generacs are a natural gas powered alternator. We have a PTO 3 phase type for our municipal water backup. I have an el-cheapo 1 KW inverter that was on sale at Walmart for $100. Runs 5-8 hours on a fill of premix gas. I have a borrowed 3500 Watt Honda inverter. That runs up to 14 hours on a fill. I have a manual transfer switch and an connector of the back of the house, It is just wired to critical power (and a kitchen outlet for coffee maker). The Generac will have an auto switch. Power goes out, genset fires up, transfers whole house over till a short while after power comes back.
The inverter has a stable voltage output, the alternators regulator will keep frequency and voltage to spec by motor control.
Canadian flat lands, at 22C (71.6F), 2 story, 2 bedroom, gas for furnace and water is about $70 CDN a month, high efficiency furnace, electrical is minimal. I have a 1 KW inverter genset for power outages. But we left it off the last time we had an overnight outage. It was -20C outside, the house lost 1 degree over 14 hours. We’re putting in a 12 KW Generac autotransfer. So wife can have coffee and Netflix. More concerned about freezers going offline in the summer if we are away.
