    It's very windy here and a power line went down about and hour and half ago, I immeiditly ran up stairs to cover the bator with towels and what not to hold heat in, it only got down to 91' so I think I'm good, but I just can't win something always goes wrong!!! Luckily there are only 3 eggs in it and my other bator is currently waiting!

    You know what's more sad is that I was in the middle of writing a huge paper for my final when the power went out, but... I was more worried about my bators hahahaha

    I should add that I'm seriously considering getting a back up battery for the computer but insted using it for my bator, just in case! When I'm not using it for the bators, I can use it for my computer lol

    OOOoooh Backup battery, that's a good idea [​IMG] I need to find the audible alarm when it goes up or down too much. Have me run in and fix the problem.
