Default Power outage

I won't be making or shipping any tools due to Hurricane Michael taking out our power here

The power company has said it will be late Tuesday night before they estimated it will come back on.

Sorry for any inconvenience
John

Know that situation very well. Hope you didn’t have much damage.

We didn't have any damage from what we can tell in our neighborhood.
everyone in a half mile area is out of power but no damage anywhere.
Not even a line down. So we can't figure out what happen. They are saying Tuesday night by 11:45 that everyone power should be on.

You can not even talk to a human at the power company to report outage or check on it.

We have generators and battery bank to keep house running.
big one to keep the fridge and freezer cold and hot water for showers.
then we will switch over to a smaller one for awhile to watch TV. Then later that night we will switch to batteries to keep the noise down
Then start it over the next day.

We finally got power back on yesterday about 1:30 right as I was leaving to go to work.
Did learn a few things that I need to get incase of another outage in the future.
