When I was 10 my mom and dad picked my brother and me up from school one day in January. They told us we were going to the city to buy a generator. Since we had been out of power for a week, we cheered! We have gone a long way from that glorious day and that pull start generator that provided enough electricty for a couple of rooms. We have a dedicated one that turns on automatically when we lose power. And it is awesome. Tonight my mom said there might be a storm, and asked us to roll the kayaks over so they would not be filled with water. We were on our way when the wind rushed in like a train.
The rain fell hard and fast and the wind was a gustin’, just the way we like. We love the fierceness and the sound of the storm, but we love the generator too!
