Yeah, we got off easy up here. Power was out for just under 3 days & I didn't even have to fire up the chainsaw - can't mind that. I knew NY & NJ got hit hard ... but watching the news reports and seeing the pictures brings it to a whole new level.
God help those people.
House is 61° right now, so I'll be firing up the last of the barn roof deck tonight to take the chill off. Then tomorrow I'll have to take the twisted-wire wheel to the coils to get the 1/4" of creosote off it. What a difference - the coils suck now! Definitely need a cleaning before the coal gets lit. I refuse to remove them to clean them though - had enough leaks to last a lifetime with these damn things!
Blazer is running again, and leak free. Still a bit of work to do before she's road ready. Got to drop the pan and change filter in the tranny while the crossmember & exhaust is down, then replace a 2 year old ball joint that's toast on the passenger side (needs sticker this month
), & replace a busted fan switch so the wifey can have some heat. THEN it'll FINALLY be done!! Thank God!!
