Hurricane (Blizzard) Sandy

It's hard to believe, but if you live in the highlands your truck probably looked like this last week.......


We lost power and got snowed in.  Everyone coped with the situation differently.  This guy picked up five gas cans and seven cases of light beer. Getting loaded and keeping the generator running  is a common strategy when dealing with mother nature at her worst.


After installing super slick battery backup systems for others I was forced to engineer a less glamorous and and far more limited version of my own simply to get the heat back up and running for a couple of days while MonPower worked to restore the juice.  It's not pretty, automatic, code-compliant or otherwise sustainable, but it kept us warm (until the old batteries I had lying around finally pooped out and we had to go stay with mom and dad).
