To those wondering about Generators, give me at least an hour or two so I can grill the Parents. We had to get one due to our location and at the time, Dad was also on at home Dialysis. When we use it, we have power upstairs in our Dining area and to the fridge and microwave. Also so we have water available. Since we have a wood burning stove, we're okay on that front whenever we lose power, but it's also good to know that generator's there and ready to go for the other stuff too. Marge, as you work at a Hospital you might know this... How are things Kidney Dialysis wise? You need clean water for that to take place, as well as power and considering my health history and now my Dad on Dialysis...Obviously, we've been wondering and worried for those who very well could be unable to get their treatments due to Sandy's effects. Oh and I bumped up the Crafting thread here to get things started at least in the way of stuff we here at FSU could make and in turn donate to the Red Cross and related organizations. You're there though and would know more than me what needs to be added to the quick list I posted off the top of my head a few minutes ago. Great to know you're okay and you and all of the health professionals are true heroes in all of this. Right up there w/the First Responders.
