re: We're Nearing Hurricane Prep time


I put my generator in my shed in the back yard and hardwired it to the well. Then ran extension cords to the house. Not at the same time, but was able to run fridge, window unit, and charge phones.

Was able to shut the doors on my shed to make the generator quiet.

Has anyone mentioned kites yet?

I always pick up about 20-30 of the cheap ones. As the wind picks up all the neighborhood kids come to our house and they fly them until the wind tears them up. they tie them to mailboxes and the last one flying gets $10.

The next day it looks like spider man got drunk and shot spider web all over the place. Kids love it and all the parents congregate to assemble the kites, repair the kites, watch, visit and drink.,,,,.,

Nice little neighborhood, all spec homes though. I know some ppl are against that, but at 23yrs old when I bought last year, I didn't care. Can't find anywhere in Mandeville at 155-170K brand new. Sq ft ranges from 1400-1800. There are about 12 different floor plans

-Those light sticks at wal mart come in handy too.
-I also have some solar lights in the ground and a few in a hurricane kit, in case.

-Night lights pull very little on a generator and give off ample lumination. With my 2000W honda gen at night with a fan, I can get by with one of two of those on an extension.

-I keep some rib eyes vac packed and other things to cook on a grill.

Ordering a pair of Honda EU2000s next week with a few more metal gas cans.

Also a new weather radio with SAME so you can program your county/parish.

Dang. I have one EU2000 and one 6500W (both honda). I got the 2000 after the 6500. Have been tempted to sell 6500 and get another 2000 cause I could probably get by fine like that and two 2000's would probably burn less fuel than the 6500.

Am curious as to why metal cans?

re: We're Nearing Hurricane Prep time


I got rid of all the crappy plastic ones I had and picked up several Eagle metal cans. They hold the vapor pressure and won't evaporate all your gas away and smell up you garage or shed.

Obviously you have to be careful of water but I only put real gas in mine if available but you should be mindful of water anyway.

Thanks, I didn't realize metal was superior. I only use non-ethanol in mine too. I also put stabil in them. I have five 5 gallon plastic ones.
