Sever Weather Preparedness Week

This week is Sever Weather Preparedness Week in Illinois and Indiana. I know many Ham radio operators use this week to get their radios working for when the first storm hits. Many weather spotters get out to training classes (mine is actually in two weeks). I hope that most families will do something, even if it’s going out a buying a NOAA Weather Radio or buying some extra batteries and flash lights for when the power gets knocked out. You never know when the weather might effect you. Last year, in my county, we got hit by both a micro burst and a tornado. Many of them effected some of the same people, as they hit only a few towns away from each other. Near my work (the next county over) another micro burst hit during yet another storm. That one knocked down power lines for nearly an mile and a half down a major road. The worst part is, I’m hearing from many weather experts that this year has the potential to be even worse than last. The norther Illinois/souther Wisconsin area has already seen their first sever weather of the year (early January). Emergencies always remind my of my Boy Scout days, “Always be prepared.”

    I have been using Generac for years. Generac generators pioneered the first overhead valve industrial (OHVI) engine in the early 1980’s. From industrial mammoth machines to portable generators they have a great product line. They make a full line of OHVI engines with either a vertical shaft or horizontal shaft configuration that makes them the most easily adaptable to a wide variety of industrial, commercial or institutional applications. The generac generator has the highest-displacement, air-cooled engines in the portable generators industry, which are renowned for their smooth, powerful, quiet operation. I would highly recommend one.
