anybody with desktop computers make sure you either have a surge protector for the power AND Ethernet, or if its not being used - unplug the power and ethernet

For those in lkwd looking to buy a generator,  Lowe's in howell got in a shipment about an hour ago. They are 5500 watts for $800. They are selling out very fast.

For those not in lkwd, I'm posting this bec there was a generator shortage in this area today.
