Still over 100K out around here. I'm one of the lucky ones, so I loaded up the 10K welder/generator and made some smiles in the back woods and main streets. Refrigeration isn't as big a deal as heat and well water or sump pumps and sewer pumps.
Hand fired wood or coal users just smiled, not so for pellet users. Home Depot brought in a TT load of 7500 and 5500's and sold them in 45 minutes. The trick was to find a town with power so you could get gasoline to run them with.
Lucky not many injuries from tree damage, but sure is a mess. 600 tree crews working from all over from as far away as Michigan.
Might be as bad as the 08 ice storm. I hear you guys about the fuses popped; but I sure don't want to be the one who resets it and gets something cooking or some line worker killed down the line.
We had some standby generators that came unglued Thursday night, and that sure affected PLC's, VFD's even though they are suppose to be protected. No need to overnight parts, can't get the planes in anyway. You guys in Maine are lucky to Central Maine Diesel right there. They have helped me out for 20 years, absolutely no complaints about the good folks there. For members who aren't familiar, look at their website. We have purchased for Towns, Fire, police and DPW's....and every one of their units performs! http://www.generatorsales.com/about-cen ... iesel.html
