Meanwhile in tennessee, where, like most of the eastern us, it has been exceptionally hot the past 2 weeks,

I saw this at a gas station tonight


Zoom in.

It is a window ac unit stuck in a sliding rear window.

Running on a 5000 watt inverter.

Redneck as hell, but we will get by here.

Not yet surprisingly but the fuel tank for the generator in our Toy Hauler is fueled up and ready if/when it happens.


Don't ever let facts get in the way of a great story

Get a decent 7.5KW or better generator!

20KW, enough to power the whole house with everything on. Power goes out and it starts automatically. Runs on natural gas, so ...more

That generator is badass!!

I’ve a friend in Wisconsin with a pretty good sized truck repair shop. EPA fined em for deleting emissions. His fine ended up being $200k, buy a certain number of wood burning stoves for Native American homes in Wisco, and plant a few hundred trees on the shop property to “offset his carbon footprint”. To my knowledge no shop has had to bring back in all those deleted vehicles and return them to stock. At this point ya gotta know it ain’t about saving the environment. Crooked fuckers. Where’s all that epa fine money go?
