Well now I don't know about everywhere in the world but seems to me a good generator is worth the investment too. I'm not familiar with generators so I don't know how long they'll run on a tank. I epxect many farms have their own tanks of gas right? We don't have one because we don't lose power often and I'm too old to deal with such things.
Our basement is damp too, so nothing is stored there. We have just the furnace and water heater. I do keep the chicks there now until they move to a room off the garage. Not sure how much longer we'll be here or have chickens. Have a guy coming tomorrow for seven. I'm torn with giving them up.
We did put gutters up but I'm not sure how much they help. Lost some last winter and need to insulate because that's why we lost them last year.
I think I feel old because many of our friends are sick. We just learned another friend has bone cancer. Her brother has brain cancer and not expected to survive. We're all in our 60's. Not old when you consider things.
