BFE, PENNSYLVANIA INVADED BY THE JOISEY MOB!
« on: January 19, 2009, 07:23:45 AM »

Mobby and Potatoe arrived here early Friday afternoon safe and sound, and were they in for a culture shock!  Mobby was especially intrigued by this quaint little community that rolls-up it's sidewalks at 5 every day excluding Sunday when they stay rolled-up. 
 
Their visit was also blessed by Mother Nature.  Friday's high temp was a thermometer-bustin' 6-degrees and we were plastered with snow all day Sunday which forced the guys to stay another night!  (Which actually worked-out well because that gave Mobby more time to eradicate the sheet of fudge that was in the fridge!) 
 
On Saturday I gave them the nickel tour and we visited several locations in and around Altoona.  The highlight was at the expense of Siss' son Shelby though.  We had lunch at Hooters and he didn't know whether to shiite or go blind! 
 
We all had a great time!  Good eats, plenty O' beer and wine, and the best of company!  Yoos two need to come back when the weather is more agreeable.

Our fearless leader shipped this power backup thingy out to me with the guys.  None of us really knew what to do with it until we put our heads together.
 
What's the worst possible scenario in the event of a power outage?

For our nine months of winter that system works rather well.  However it's the three months of un-winter where this UPS may come in handy.

Those are GP40-2s in your pic Bob.  I forgot to write down the road No.'s of the 70's.  It was in the single-digits and my camera was not liking it one bit, hence the fuzziness. MoparMatt2009-01-19 17:45:41
