Our breaker box is also downstairs plus the way our generator is wired in, the two of us need to go downstairs to the breaker box plus switch the power over to the generator, so the two of us still have our boiler running
When you live on top of a mountain, you know there are going to be some troubles to contend with. When it snows, if you don’t have a snowplow, you aren’t going someplace for several days or even weeks. When the two of us have Springtime rains, our driveway will ultimately wash out. One of our greatest troubles is that every time the wind blows, the two of us lose our cable. We aren’t able to get cable or satellite cable without chopping down half the trees on our property, plus that isn’t going to happen. Our kids always complained because they only had antenna cable, but I told them they are lucky they had any. Our number one complaint is the electricity. It seems that whenever the two of us have any kind of storm, the two of us lose our electricity. We depend mainly on electricity for our appliances. Even though the two of us have a boiler for our heating plus warm water, the two of us still need electricity for our boiler to ignite. The boiler is in the basement, which is underground. Without electricity, there is no way the two of us can get into the basement without falling down the stairs. Our breaker box is also downstairs plus the way our generator is wired in, the two of us need to go downstairs to the breaker box plus switch the power over to the generator, so the two of us still have our boiler running. I provide our hubby a candle plus tell him to go provide us some heat. It doesn’t take long until the boiler is laboring, plus the two of us really don’t need to worry about this unless it is winter. Maybe the two of us should set up some kind of emergency lighting in the basement.
