Power outage

Sitting in the dark with no power. Hope its not long. Have 140, 240 and 29 with no filters or air. Nothing is backflowing onto the floor so that's good.

Have power on the strip. I live in Henderson, just east of the strip. Power out in my neighborhood. Here is what it looked like earlier today! Power is back now and all is good. Everything started back up and all fish are good after about an hour of no power.

Good to hear. I live in earthquake country, so a genny and a few extension cords are always at hand.

It was just a crazy storm that lasted about an hour. I will be shopping for a genny maybe. Seems like alot of money to not use it much.

Yeah,...but,..if you only have to use it once it MAY be money well spent,.... In my case I didn't have any power for like 10-12 hours,... Easy decision there ,.... Sometimes you can pickup a cheapie at harbor freight for under a hundred bucks....., my brother will be watching my tank in a couple of months while I go to Hawaii again to do some "research ".... So just in case We lose power while I'm gone , He'll have a backup policy.....

Doesn't need to be a huge one. If/when I have to use mine I plan to rotate different appliances on/off and not have everything running all at once, all the time.
