Storms Cause Extensive Power Outages Throughout Area
This will be my life for the next few days.
We fired up the generator early this morning in order to power the refrigerators, the sump and water pumps, and of course the coffee maker. I've already been asked if we can hook up the WiFi tonight.
This was one of our best investments.
It's a Basement Watchdog backup pump that empties our sump pit in the event of a power outage or pump failure. If you have a basement with a pit, get one. (I'm not being paid to endorse this product, it's just something I'm really glad we have.)
Tens of thousands of people are without power as high winds and storms rolled through Mid-Michigan. Consumers Energy and DTE report that Genesee and Lapeer Counties have the highest numbers of customers without power.
- Genesee: 13,449
- Shiawassee: 8,795
- Huron: 5,000
- Lapeer: 12,000
- Tuscola: 6,000
