Ugh Michael

I almost stopped this hobby after Hermine followed by Irma wiped much of my tanks.

But no last xmas I treated myself to a seahorse pair and started gathering other pairs.

But Michael will assure that we lose power soon. I do have a generator but the tanks will be without power for hours. We will see how many days our house is without power. Do we have enough gas?

At least I shipped out two babies yesterday to Arkansas. They should make it and be safe.

Yeah I don't have a whole home system. Powers out now but need to wait for the worst to pass before dragging the generator out

Me too. We are still without power. The cell service is also spotty at our house. But they claim by tomorrow evening we will probably be back on. I've lost a few babies, my brine isn't hatching well. Don't know if it is less light, lower temps, this batch of eggs. I barely have enough outlets for all the tanks yet alone all the brine, algae etc.

Just asking but why wait until the storm is passing to bring out the generator? When we got destroyed by a snow storm and lost power I brought it out as soon as power went out for longer than an hour.

If you set it up during the strom, you run the risk of it getting water famage, or worse it blows away...

Ha. Well a hurricane is slightly different than a snow storm.

well ya but northeasters here can blow 60mph winds and have the snow covered trees fall from the weight of the snow... even the hurricanes we've had here, I still put the generator out.
