Sounds like the beginning of a great night.
Candle light is magical...and we ate good!
That sounds like a prepper's dream!
In a pinch we could eat likely for months with this set up. Fresh water springs on the property for water. Underground storage to keep meat cool. Curing supplies. Freezer's bursting with game and beef. Supplies of many (beans, rice and such).
You know you're going to have to give-in if this blackout lasts much longer. As the old saying goes: "If momma's not happy, ain't nobody happy!"
Wife was kind of mad about no TV (I was happy, hate the TV).
I guess being as far back in BFE as you are that power outages are not rare events. Is your generator portable, or permanently set somewhere?
Didn't even need one gallon of diesel from the (45kW) generator, didn't even have to start it (though I do run it often).
You have satellite Internet? How well does that work for you? I've heard that the packet delay is pretty annoying.
