A new story from Around the House with Eric G®


If you've got a couple forty eight hours of a heat storm. You know where you've got wind coming in it's dry storm and you're in the hundred degree range. Be careful you're probably gonna lose power so then you decide what you're going to do for your house because it could be one hundred degrees outside and tell you what food does not last long and refrigerator when it's one hundred degrees inside your house. It's just not that efficient. So you're gonna lose a lot of stuff. Are you ready with a generator. Are you ready to go someplace. Because we're not just talking one little area. You could have an entire metropolitan area get shut down on power so there's no going to a hotel star localized power outage this would be a large blackout event. So make sure that you have got extra water. Put away the. You've got all these things to make sure that you're ready to go in case of emergency. I think this is going to be one of those years. We're going to see that ramp up and see a lot more of this. They've sure been looking at it. Testing it along You know across the west coast. So i've got a generator that can run for days on end to run my house. It was Strong enough to run my air conditioning and refrigerators not so worried about the about the water heater and the lights. I can survive that in the summertime. Even though it would run that but i i i'd be pushing it by running the water heater and all that stuff with the a c at the same time. But you get my drift. Make sure that your setup for this. Because i think this is going to be the year that we really got to watch out. Because for instance here in the portland oregon area where i'm at right. Now come out this weekend record breaking all time. June temperatures. We could be depending on what news source. You're looking at could be one hundred five. We could be hundred ten. I saw one hundred twelve. I don't know where it's going to be considering. What forty to. Fifty percent of our market has air conditioning. Yeah there's gonna be a lot of people as well as the homeless out there. So that's going to be its own little mass but make sure you're prepared. I'm warning you right now this next year or two not only. Should you make sure you have got a way to keep cool. But make sure you can stay hydrated. Make sure that you can survive through that. Because i think we're setting up. All it takes is one windstorm. And you're going to see power get taken down so be prepared for that guys. I'm too. I think this is going to be the time to get that generator or make sure that you've got the fuel for the generator and all of that stuff. So you're going to be good to go that way you'll be fine but make sure your fuel for a couple of days so make sure you are stocked up and ready to go that way. It's not a concern and then make sure you're staying healthy out there. Make sure in heat storms as well like this where we the wind in the in the heat and all that stuff coming in any of those kind of stormy weather summertime extreme heat conditions. Make sure that you're checking on your neighbors. Be a good neighbor. Make sure that that elderly lady on the corner from your house is looking good that she's fine check in to make sure everybody's doing okay in your neighborhood that way. Everybody can stay a little bit safer all right. That's my warning ran for this week on our mid week. Special coming up on saturday. We've got a fun. Show ahead our number two.
