    With the week I've had, I'm suprised that I can remember my name.

    Was bursting a new pipe in an option? Had that done at my house. No digging up the lawn. They dug a hole at the street and one st the side of the house and burst a new pipe through the old one. Very cool process and 0 damage

    Its a very young storm.. its not a cane where we see it develop for 5 days in the Atlantic.. if it comes up here it would probably have land interaction and be a tropical storm at most.. but ya never know .. im hoping ots

    Trying to decide if it’s even worth getting some storm prep in tomorrow or not

    An awful lot of rain seems to be on the way but I haven't seen much about wind

    I'm shopping generators again.
    there's a BIG price jump from a 10kW to a 12kW.
    trying to decide if it's worth it.
    the bigger ones have features that I think are great for longevity (spin-on oil filters, pressured oil feed systems, twin cylinder engines, etc.)
    but going from $1500 to $3000 for the 2kW is a bit of a pill to swallow.
    there's also the aspect of the extra margin that affords me, and the guaranteed ability to fire up the central A/C. i'm pretty sure the 10kW can do it though.
    there's also the fact I'll be converting it to run on natural gas, which automatically de-rates the units.

    Models seem to agree about 3-5" of rain.

    I'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to a washout Tuesday

    40-60mph wind and up to 4-6” of rain for my area according to the most recent forecast on Ch7. Its been a long time since we had a real tropical storm come through

    Should be a pretty decent storm. Gave my chainsaws and trash pump a quick once over incase I find any work from this, bringing all the machines home at the end of the day today just in case
