you can share power with the neighbors,
who wouldnt complain about noise since
they will have power too
One friend of mine did exactly that. His neighbor
knew some about electricity, and was able to run
cords to a couple different houses.
My two neighbors, one "had a generator coming
from the fire hall" and planned to run a space
heater in the living room. I offered to show
him how to wire it into the furnace, he declined.
Other neighbor had a kerosene heater and was
warm enough. The elderly lady across the street
was wrapped in blankets with the stove burners
on, worrying about monoxide. She also declined.

Thanks to everyone for their helpful (and not so helpful - grin)
suggestions and comments regarding water heater in my home that recently
Well, tomorrow morning a new AO Smith 40-gallon, natural gas water
heater will be installed - about $1450, give or take. I selected the
company that had previously done work for me when my (clothes) washing
machine flooded my home, and homeowner's insurance covered that cost.
Their price is a little bit more than three other companies I had
contacted that also provided estimates.
It will be interesting to see if this new water heater will make a
difference with my utility bill. I anticipate there will be some
savings even if meager since a new(er) water heater has got to be more
efficient than the dinosaur that croaked <vbg>. Better some savings
than none, eh ;-)
Sky, who'll be glad to have hot water again !!!
