Default Running on generator power now...

And unfortunately not whole-house power. I have 2 generators running, one is 12,000 watts and the one I took to Lincoln is 2,300 watts. We've already lost power a couple of times today, but I made the transition in my office to run 100% off of the generator (minus the mini split A/C).

Wind gusts currently between 65 and 70 mph, and the next 6 hours or so are going to be pretty nasty. Power is still on, but I'm switched over for what I need it for. Only last thing to plug into it will be the main refrigerator. No hint of overloading, but the number of extension cords running through the house is comical.

Power out for good. System still running. Had to make a few minor tweaks, but now fridge is on generator, so 100% of everything that needs to run is running!
