It's good to be back online and settled again after 4 days of power outage from Hurricane Isaac. Lost power on Tuesday and had to run off generators for 4 days. Spent most of the down time outside doing what little work i could around my house and the rest of my family that all live within a 4 block area. I can't exactly pinpoint my reasoning, but i think it had to do with the fact that i had no power and spent a lot more time outside. i kept this guy on my wrist at all times. (Sorry for the crappy phone pic.)
i have often thought to myself that i just don't use the timer function as much as i should and sometimes felt i had no use for it at all. Well let me tell you it came in handy during this experience. Fill the generator and set the timer to remember when i had to be back to refill it! I am just thankfull i was merely inconvenienced for a few days without power as compared to Katrina that took everything i owned. It's great to be back semi-normal again!
