    Screwtube done un sobbed me again i been watching for this vid had search it out tonight & found it ! Glad things wasnt bad for you & our prayers are with all those effected by the storm ! Where kind of worried about this winter with reports saying its going be lot snow & colder then normal here top indiana we get those lake effect snowstorms off lake michigan We got backup power with 4 generators for the family & fireplaces if powers out extended time but after so long the pipes start freezing !

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Owen Osborne says:

    Love all the work you've done for this. Good luck out there

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Claudia Stutsman says:

    We were out here in Missouri for 5 days after 2 feet of snow – no water either, because on a well. Had to stay because lots of pets. Had plenty of water stored up for the animals because I always keep big jugs on hand for the winter, just in case.

    We melted snow to use to flush the toilet and just wore a lot of clothes. We had some young chicks in the house, but brought broody hens in to keep them warm. House temps fell slowly over the time we were out, but didn't go below 50. All the neighbors were also without, but fortunately one came by with a 4×4 on the 3rd day and took me to a local store to charge my cell phone and grab some hot coffee. We did fine, didn't even lose a chick, the only real casualties were some eggs I had in the incubator.

    Wish you well, and hope the power is restored soon!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Larry Mixer says:

    Don't know if it is any comfort but yesterday while heading over from my mom's home I waited for a caravan of Alliant Energy trucks and some flatbed semis carrying various supplies headed your way. Hopefully they will be able to make good time to you all. My neighbor two homes down will be there helping. He started out as a lineman and is now a distribution specialist, whatever that is. Glad that everyone is okay and safe. With time perhaps you all can get back to your new normal.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TZB 997 says:

    You were talking about the wasps and I was thinking 'BUT WHAT ABOUT THE CHICKENS' haha…glad they're all ok…had no doubt, with that preparation, you and the family would have anything else but a cousy night together. Btw…what you call 'back yard' we call 'park' over here haha (your back yard would cost 30 million easily)
    …too bad some of your favourite trees got the worst of it…glad everyone is ok…keep posting!

    We wondered how you did, good to see you safe.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Riker says:

    It's great to see you and the family faired well through the storm. You guys got hammered down there in Florida! I live about 16 miles inland of Myrtle Beach, the wind wasn't all that bad (I'm 65 and been through quite a few hurricanes) but we got a lot of rain. Lost power at 10:32 AM and restored at 7:42 PM, and yes I have a generator. Get back to work, love your videos! I'm a retired maintenance mechanic, AKA jack of all trades – master of none! 😆

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bryan Anderson says:

    Glad to see you faired well. I am in Fort Myers Beach and what is your opinion on a Harley that was in a trailer that unfortunately allowed the sea water in and submerged the bike? I had to evacuate and have not seen it, a friend called and checked on it said based on water marks it was completely submerged.
