Thanks to the help of Chuck Bennett, I was able to secure a 4,000 watt generator, from some nefarious creature living in the backwoods of New Jersey. This ‘gent’ had a fairly large “jerk-off hole” in his pants and was heaving up a storm, like due to his emphysema like condition. His backyard was littered with lawn mowers (the riding type) and lots of other stolen goods. Chuck and I tried our best to not laugh in his face, instead opting to mildly mock his “Pakistani-like existence”–living in the part of NJ that no one gives a shit about.
I paid him $650 and went on my way.
The House of Fly is stocked with 6 months supply of grain and the pantry has more than 1 weeks worth of water/dry goods. The main concern stems from the high water table in the Princeton area, which has plagued many a basement with floods during power outages. The sump pumps must be energized, at all times. Since I just moved in, I have been unable to have a large natural gas, permanent, generator installed. I will make sure to do so next spring.
So I had to fish around for generators, finding myself #205 on the Sears waiting list. All hardware stores were sold out, within a 150 mile radius. It’s fucking ridiculous.
GNRC is making a killing.
For now, I’m kicking back, listening to some music, consuming sone Chimay Grande Reserve–putting two middle fingers up whenever the weather man speaks.
