so the power has been out in Ca. for 2 days......I have a small generator I have been using for Skittles. It runs out of gas at about 4 am......I have it fired back up by 5:30 am.....but it does get down to 65 f. and 95% humidity. I hope that short time does not cause problems......Power is back on now.

I was thinking about you with the power cut-offs by PG&E. Glad to hear you are prepared best you can. I would really have to scramble to change some things if that happened to us here!

Skittles is looking good!

I hope everyone is safe in California, well away from the fires. Hope the power cuts stop soon too, we've got one on Friday but only for a few hours while they cut back trees near the power lines.
