many good ideas, including the one to start this thread. for future reference, fill drug prescriptions well in advance, if possible. i had a four hour wait yesterday for one. although in my case with a prescription plan, insurance won't pay until a very few days before the drug's actual refill date.

Right. Who's counting?

Bob, I thought about it for a few years before pulling the trigger, but the whole "what if the gas stations are affected too?" scenario talked me into it. I've got a 4000w and a 5000w generator that I need the tractor to get them up by the house anyway (I actually want to sell the one now). Plus I'm pretty lazy when it comes to regularly starting them .

Ok, generator owners, where do we start? Gas, battery, nat gas, propane? My mind is boggled. Not in dire need here, but for current and future reference, as well as for the Ireneians. Tutorial please? Advice?

Here's a good site on generators, Dawg.
You can check out the different kinds and compare prices. It has a "which one for me" section, too. I think the main things you have to ask yourself is how much do you want to power and how big of a generator can you handle, as in either carry to where you need it or leave in place. And if you want to run cords, or feed your electrical panel.

Just give me a generator and a package of wet-wipes and I'm good
