Auto Correct: Generators

We’re going to get out of our lane a bit today – well, not Coach’s lane! We’re going to talk about generators – they’re engines and that’s coach’s expertise. So whether it’s a generator for when the power goes out when it’s cold, or when there’s been a hurricane or tornado - if you have one, you need to maintain it. Especially now as Hurricane season starts next week.
