Have you run across the Dyson two-hands wind-tunnel dryer yet? That's really professional.And are you considering getting a generator to put out in the barn? At least it could keep food in the fridge from spoiling.scott
Scott, since there's no meat in the fridge and the whole house is cold, food spoilage is a minor issue. Also we have a gas stove. The oven requires electronics to operate, but the stove-top burners can be lit with a match so cooking food is no problem either. But the house sitting at 47.5 degrees yesterday is a real problem. For a generator to deal with heat, it would have to be elaborately hooked into the house systems and be powerful enough to operate both the burner for the steam boiler and the well pump to keep the system supplied with water. What's more likely is that we will look carefully into installing a wood stove on the ground floor at the back of the house. Partly because I have literally years worth of hardwood that I have to deal with because of the storm damage. Might as well reduce it to stove lengths and have supplemental heat to reduce our oil bills as well as emergency warming for the house in power failures.
no ice cream?
