Power Outage Stories
We lost power for a week in the ice storm. However we do have a small generator that we got after that. HOWEVER, my exhusband hardwired a heavy wire directly into the fuse box by drilling a hole through the foundation from the garage. The other end of the wire had a thick plug on it that just layed on the garage floor. When this storm came my son went to pick it up and got zapped with 220v or 110v…I am not sure but either way it was not good. The plug was just laying on an area of the garage floor that gets wet during bad storms too. It was very scary. I had a friend take electrical tape and just seal and close off the plug end so it wouldn’t sit there “hot”. But now we have no way to use the generator when power is lost again. So that is my “hot” story. Please pick US!
