Do you own one?

It was pretty obvious that only one of my neighbors owns a generator since only one house had any lights at all last night.

I do and it was a life saver after an ice storm when we were without power for about a week. Not nice when you can't run the furnace in the winter and it's nice to have the refrigerator working too. I would like to get one that runs on natural gas though. When you locate a gas station that has power so they can pump gas, the lines get pretty long.

I don't own one, but I was a certified generator mechanic, when I was a National Guardsman.

Why can't I get a muffler for my generator? You can tell where they are by following the sound and many got stolen during the power outages around here.

I don't, but my mom does. Where she lives, the power goes out a lot, and she needs backup power to run her well

Seriously thinking about it but... you need an electrician to properly set up your house to accept the power. As a fer instance, I would want the furnace, refers/kitchen (not the range) and at least one circuit for TV to be working off the generator.

I would like one as well. But I currently don't have one.

No.

We do get some bad winter storms and last year we lost power for about 36 hours.

no we don't, but it's just the kind of manly man thing he'd love to have. :?

we went for 10 days without power once in NC and it would have been hella sweet at that time.

My parents borrowed one once when we lost power for nearly a week after a tornado in KY. It was really cool I have to say.

Don't have one. Would be nice to have as a back-up for emergency but I can't justify spending the money.

I have one. Our old house had a sump pump, which was really needed in big rainstorms. That was the only thing we used it for.
So we still have it. It hasn't been started in five years.
