I can't find a generator for the love of money around here, Middlesex County - everyone is sold out. My main concern is powering the basement sump pump in case of power outage...

Man I love Portland

Wish you all out there luck through what's looking like a whopper of a storm.

We are going to get creamed. Have 80 ft trees all around my place.
Guarantee one will hit the house.

We have a bunch of 60 to 80 ft trees close to the house also.......

I have a prototype 5 KW 12v Class D power amplifier here that I had designed for a client, and a bunch of 7 AH SLA batteries, so I'm going to feed 60 Hz into the amp and set output to 110V, to see if it'll run the sump pump. The batteries are probably too wimpy to keep it going for any amount of time though.

Hoping for the best for all you East Coasters and will be thinking of you.

I love a good gin & tonic with a lime wedge in the summertime. I'll be thinking of that too.

I'm not a religious man but I am praying for all of you. There's quite a number of members likely affected including Pano, our moderator in N. Carolina and Kevinkr in Mass.
