Due to a major storm knocking power off to over 200000 people, I have been powering most of my house for 18 hours with 2 2000 watt honda's, a parralell cord, and a bunch of extension cords, with 3 gallons of gas. Sitting outside my home chained to my suburban, all I have had to do was add fuel one time and keep the snow from covering them up. My kids and lady are cozy warm and we are watching tv, surfing the internet, with water, fridge, furnace exc. They are very quiet, reliable, and easy to use. My kids can pull start them. Hopefully my power comes back on soon, either way I have a six gallons of fuel left, lol.

I lost a lot of limbs from trees due to the weight of the snow and ice, if I had not moved everything to the front yard, at 130 am when i heard things snapping, trees would have taken out my tv, jeep, and camper. Tree limbs were taking out power lines, houses, and vehicles all night. nice light show when transformers pop and power lines are arcing all over. Solar panels on my camper would not power up my house. The gensets are portable. Power is back on here at home but many people outside the city will be without for a while yet.
