Mr. Schmidt got a generator today. It is a gasoline one, and because of the high price of gas he would have preferred a diesel, but it's quite powerful, powerful enough to pump the water into a gravity feed tank, so we now have running water, as well as electricity. The generator won't run 24/7, but it'll be turned on frequently enough to give us water, and to wash the laundry. Of course, when it's on, we can charge the computers, so hopefully I'll have more time to write on here, and not have to worry about battery.
Note: Some of you may notice that the date I put in some of my posts doesn't agree with the day it was actually published. This is because I don't have access to the internet just whenever I want. So I'll often type whatever I want to say while the generator's running, or I have a full battery, and post it when I get a chance.
