We’re only as good as our longest-lasting battery

I was standing in the fireplace accessory aisle of Lowes on Sunday when a older gentleman asked if I could move to the left a bit so he could look at the portable generators.

“Sure,” I said.

“Are you getting ready for the ice and snow on its way over?”

Since it was the first I’d heard of the bad weather, I faked it and said, “Oh, yes. Living here, we’re always prepared.”
