Storm Update - Part II (?)

Still no power since yesterday morning. All batteries are just about dead now. Probably no more posts until the power comes back on. The power company says maybe today, maybe tomorrow for power to be restored. This is really unusual for around here, as it's usually wind that knocks out the power, not snow. We usually don't have to deal with too much cold when the power's gone. We're keeping the chill of the house with an industrial sized ppropane heater in the living room. Fortunately the local rental yard has a generator hooked up to their propane bottle filling pump, so I can get refills. The roads aren't to good, but It's only a mile or so along back roads, so It's not a problem. That's it for now, before the battery goes completely flat........

I knew a guy who wanted to raise the pressure in his propane tank - so he pointed the propane heater at it,
Please don't do that.

Lemme see: 12 volt battery, needs a charge. Where can we get 12 volt power.

Hmmmmmm. This is a toughie.

Oh Yes! CAR. The car has a 12 volt alternator in it.

Now, by any chance, do you have a pair of jumper cables?

If so, you can recharge that battery, at least a partial charge.

Just pretend Armageddon has happened, and your life depends on getting that battery charged.

THAT'S the motivation you'll need.
