|This street is two blocks from our house|
We expected to have water in our basement, and the generator would be a huge help in pumping out the water. Fortunately, the earth did her work and absorbed the rainwater (all 10 inches or so!). This fact alone amazes me. The damage to our home can be measured in multiple roof shingles blown throughout the neighborhood. No leaks, no structural damage.
The fan was truly a blessing during the 24 hours we ran our shiny, new, blue generator.
...and the Dismal Swamp Fire? Although dealt a blow by Irene, small areas continue to smolder.
