Not complaining, thankfull we have what we have.....but I don't live on a farm...have a nice place in the country....we're in the city....Bobcat??? what's a Bobcat.....Blue stop your complaining. It took me 2 days to get out of my road (3 Miles) I cut and pushed with my Bobcat a half miles out to my neighbor and got hime and his wife cuting while I ran the bobcat. Made it to my next neighbor the end of first day. Picked him up the second day and had 3 sawing. We picked up two more on the way out and made it to the end of the road at 2 o'clock the second day. Six days so far with out power and they say it may be 2 more weeks. I lost all my trees in the front yard and have not had time to look over the farm. But we are making it fine. There is no power in my little town (Dawson Springs) and very little in Madisonville.
You found the solution for not losing power... just buy a generator.We got hit by a similar ice storm 2 yrs ago...... My house was without pwr for 5 days - long enuf for everything in the fridges/freezers to go south !
At the time of the ice storm - generators were no where to be found - at any price. I bought a generator soon after & of course, the lights haven't flickered since !
Buy a generator & you'll never hafta worry about losing pwr again !
