Oh I Love Me A Generator!

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!
