    A good strategy in life is to marry someone who really enjoys DIY household chores, cleaning and projects. The problem for my wife and I is that neither of us did.

    I'm not sure I'd use the word "enjoy." I can be impressively lazy, but having lived in the same house for 30+ years, I know what needs to be done, and I do them, especially those things that need to be accomplished before snow sets in.
    I am one part work, two parts congratulating myself on what I've done.

    5600 watts. Our area is prone to big wind and snow storms, we've lost power for five full days on several occasions...did not have the money 15 years ago to get the automatic, whole house generator (would've been $9k or so including buying a propane tank) so we had the house properly wired by an electrician and bought a Sears generator, all for just over $2k...doesn't do the whole house, but it does get the furnace working, fridge, lots of lights, more than enough to get by for days...easily rolls out of our walkout basement...

    yesterday was the third anniversary (Halloween, 2017) of The Big Wind Storm when we lost about 150 trees, several on the house, 35 or so across the driveway (all 70 foot white pines), president of the power company had a photo op at the end of our driveway...not a fun day...

    As such I always make sure I have a five gallon can of non ethanol gasoline, just in case...

    Still on Ocracoke. Morning kayak, winds got strong. Long dog walk. Long bike ride, started to rain.

    Time to make chili and watch football.

    YouTube didn't listen, either. Online service premiered an hour earlier than we wanted.

    It sounds like we are all being ignored.

    Some of the quotes I've seen for whole house generators have been sizable. As far as Texas utilities go, our uptime has been pretty good and big storms while always possible haven't had much of an impact power wise. Part of that is being in a relatively new part of town where much of the grid is underground.
