The weather slows us down

The weather slows us down

The weather slows us down
Zonked by the weather

Nothing like a little hurricane to slow us down.
Lost power, phone, internet for almost a week.
Generator ate over $250 in gas,and I used my solar recharged electric telephone truck as a power source to run my freezer and fridge overnight, and was able to run them for over 12 hours on a charge that I was able to recover each day from my solar panels.
Need bigger inverter, solar array,and battery bank.
Built a few more solar chargers for my LED lights.
We kept on working and made some good progress.
