I am sooooo sad guys :'(
We have been smelling something burning for 2 days and we followed our nose and ended up in the laundry room at the electrical panel...smoking and sizzling
So Today we called an electrician over and he shut the whole thing down :-\
So now we have no heat, no lights, food in the fridge/freezer going bad, no hot water to wash our behinds... luckily we have our generator running so I made sure to plug in the laptop first. I can't be missing out on my LCB!!!!!!
We are all in the living room with the one T.V.(got football ), the fireplace, a bunch of comfort food, some brandy, wine, coffee, two mattress's and a whole lot of blankets(and it's still cold)! My son is trying to cook a pizza in the fireplace(funny as...)
and the best part is it is only gonna cost us $2000 :'( dollars because the (licensed) electrician is a long time family friend
So needless to say, there goes Christmas :'( and we(especially the kids) look forward to this all year!
Oh well I guess it could be worst, we could all be smokey Joes or dead!!!!!
Bye Bye Christmas...

- SJ I am with Mike on this. I lived in MO and at a local equipment store I could get a 30 panel for $239 and the fuses were about $30 or so.
Get a "Non-friend" to check this out..I ask you to REALLY check, lots of places will do a free estmate also.
I know that this "Friend" may be insulted, but it's not the money but the prinicpal is also as important.
