I really can't believe we haven't had a generator yet. It's not unusual to have power outages here, but they rarely last for more than a few hours. But you never know.
Just thought it might make sense to pick up a little generator.
It's a gasser, but from what I've read is if you use the right preservative, and store the gas right, it can last up to 2 years.
I ordered a bunch of 5 gallon metal jerry cans, and I figure I'll keep them on a regular schedule of using one of the per month in the car, and cycling through them all to keep them fresh.
Also may have ordered some of those 'buckets-o-emergency' food from Costco as well.
I must be watching 'Doomsday Preppers' too much lately, but better to be have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.
Time to start on the full scale trebuchet.
