    Snowmeggedon 2018!!

    LOL. About an inch or so on the ground here so far. Only maybe third or fourth time we have had snow here in 20 years. This is sticking and coming down pretty good for early in the day.

    Off to freak out and run to the store for milk and bread!!! LMAO

    Does make you think- glad I have more firewood on the porch but should have brought in double yesterday.

    Any SE types getting this also? Stay off the roads if you can, everyone not accustomed to driving will be attempting it.

    Took a snow day and went and trained this morning.

    Hard to say exactly how much we had, maybe only 2-4″. We drove over to the range to check on some folks over that way and decided to take a snow day and get some training in.

    The Snugpak salopettes and SJ9 jackets worked great, lots of time on the ground in them. Rifles ran fine (they are AKs after all) and the ACOGs worked fine. Spent about 800 rounds between two of us working some drills, then rolled around on the ground for a while before leaving the range, what can I say, kids will be kids

    Rare to get snow here, so we damn sure were going to make good use of it!

    I just installed a transfer switch for my new generator. Ran it for a couple of hours yesterday to run it out of gas. I thought it'd be a good test today to put a gallon of gas in it and see how long it lasted running what I'd connect during an outage. Furnace, kitchen outlets (freezer), fridge, living room outlets (led lights). Being in the low 20's with a light breeze, I thought it'd be a good almost worst case scenario for a functional/run time test.

    It started on the third pull after being run dry/refilled at ~23 degrees. Been running for 2 hours so far. I'll reply with the findings. Its a 5k Briggs and Stratton with idle control so we'll see how long it lasts. So far, it's running at about 25% most of the time (the furnace only takes about 500w when running, 1kw on startup...my xfer switch has two wattage meters, one for each 3 circuits).

    Ran for 3 1/2 hours. There may have been a little more than a gallon in the can, so I'm calling it 3 hours. With a 5 gallon tank, gives me about a 15 hour run time at temps between 23 and 25 degrees in Georgia...pretty much worst case (unless the wind really kicks up).
