Re: COVID-19 Chat Thread

We did just get a fairly low price on a Generac propane-only generator to make 240V to power the well pump but that's the hardest-starting small engine I've ever used.

NT2C3PO can double check, but the secure/not secure has a lot to do with images. If people link images without http s it'll report as non secure.
