I’M ALONE, IT WAS FRIGHTENING TO THINK WHAT AM I GOING TO DO. IT WASN’T AN EARTHQUAKE THAT CAUSED HER POWER TO GO OUT BUT TORNADO LIKE WINDS THAT RIPPED THROUGH PASADENA, KNOCKING DOWN TREES. THAT INCLUDED TO THAT CHAPTER IN HER HOME. WE HAD THIS HUGE WIND STORM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. YOU WOULD HEAR THIS WIND LIKE A THUNDEROUS BOOM. ALL OF A SUDDEN IT WOULD JUST BE DEAD SILENCE.

THAT WAY, IT’S DRAWING POWER FROM THE SUN, IT’S CONSTANTLY RECHARGING. REPORTER: BOTH GENERATORS HAVE ENOUGH. BENEFITS WOULD BE, YOU HAVE A LOT OF POWER AND YOU CAN RUN A LOT OF DIFFERENT APPLIANCES IN THE HOUSE.

One thought on “Surviving Disaster: Gas Vs. Solar Generators

  1. If God has destroyed your community because its contributing to global warming and caused the storm dont you think its wise to stop poluting the environment? You dont need solar or a generator! You might need water and warm clothes or some dry food! You guys need to stop eatting the mushrooms in the front yard! In the old days hand and wind pumps provided water! And may need an out house as well! Or poop in a bucket with water in it and bury it in the back yard! Best to be growing herbs in the yard year round for strength!
