Apparently I've failed to see a significant event in Michigan that has knocked out power...

Off to do searches...GL4x4 is my number one source for Michigan news.

...that's just scary.

Well, the F-1 tornado in Lansing on Sunday afternoon did a number on our transmission and distribution system. This was probably the worst outage since an ice storm they had back in the 80's. We still have 300-400 people out in Lansing. Most are just individual service drop outages, not groups of houses out.

I would assume thats a joke?


speaking of Generators I have had a generac for going on 16 years. its a great generator. never been pain other then I fouled a plug and had water in the gas from not storing correctly. my record is 6 1/2 days without power since I built my house. the neighborhood record is 13 days. those of you who have complaints should live where I'm at.
