I'm all electric in my home, we've got a Honda eu2000i generator for lights, TV and the computer. Got a second 6500watt generator for longer outages to run deep freezes and refrigerators and such. I also keep a small window unit air conditioner around so if the outage is in the summer I can cool a room or two with it and a generator. I have two 18,000 btu Mr Heater Portable Propane heaters. I also have a portable propane oven with a two burner range on top of it and a two burner cooker and grill. I keep several 5 gallon cans of non-ethanol gas around, I use the oldest first for lawn mowers and 4 wheelers and try and keep them rotated to stay fresh. I try and have 4 to 5 cans on hand at all times along with 4 or 5 20 pound propane bottles. We were hit by a tornado 4 years ago and were out of power for over a week, after that we stay ready.
