Really good idea about window unit + generator. I think this is in our future with the Texas grid undependable.
Yep. Me too. It’s better to have it on hand and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

Re: June 2021: Watching The Bay of Campeche

It’s the dang coil. It’s ordered. Just taking too long. It’s even under warranty Go buy a small window unit to cool one room until the parts arrive. Then keep the window unit to run on a generator in the event we have a hurricane that knocks out power. That’s what I did for Ike. Went to Home Depot ...

Re: June 2021: Watching The Bay of Campeche

I’ve read on a chat the storm is coming here, no it’s going to Louisiana, wait! It’s going to Alabama and Mississippi and even to Florida. The hysteria over a tropical blob is over the top. And all this time I thought we had to have a center of circulation to determine where a storm most likely go. ...

Re: June 2021: Watching The Bay of Campeche

Is SETX out of the target area now? I’m seeing different tracks and quite frankly, it’s getting confusing on what to believe. I don’t think a center has formed yet. But who knows 🤷‍♀️

Winter and Hurricane Season question

Historically and statistically speaking, when our area in the upper Texas coast has had an extreme winter event like we did in February, was our following hurricane season one where our area was hit with a hurricane? Thank you in advance.

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Warmup Begins

A little shell shocked here. We are wondering is there any cold air on the horizon or was this the finale of our winter.

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Hard Freeze Warning ⚠️

Thinking of generac also. Dad on cpap and I have autoimmune issues. Idk though looks expensive. Also in sw houston will the freeze require drip again? If a standby generator is a medical necessity, ask his physician to write a letter stating that. From what I understand it is a tax deductible medic...

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Hard Freeze Warning ⚠️

Now seriously thinking about a natural gas or propane generator. Am worried about the cost but... I bought a Generac 22KW standby generator with an auto transition switch last March. Runs on natural gas. Ran the entire house through this ordeal.first outage was 24 hours. Then they were several hour...
