We have one because my husband is 02 dependent, as well as addicted to the TV :) Before it became a necessity, I'd fill the tub when a storm started and break out the candles and hurricane lamps and it was camping in the house. A few years ago, pre-generator, the power was out for a week and we lost everything in the 2 freezers & both fridges. It has gotten much better but the memory of the storm of 2003, and its 11 FEET of snow lingers and I will always have a generator.



The winter of 2003 is "haunting" especially getting up in the years. I am still dependent on electricity... as running a business requires internet connections. It is not high maintenance -- twice a year, the Kohler maintenance crew comes out, checks fluids, etal. True that power is generally restored in a couple of hours. It is the loss of power in sub zero weather, that is challenging.. well water, which needs power to pump, and keeping the horse water tanks from freezing and filled is more than challenging.

As Yogi Berra, the old Yankee's baseball catcher and philosopher might have said: "A generator is not needed, unless it's necessary" :whistle:
