I'm getting ready to buy a new house. If I have any money left over I'm planning on a whole house standby generator which is run on natural gas. Being in the mid-west we get either serious rain storms or occasionally a lot of snow. Two years ago, my buddy was without power for 10 days after a thunderstorm. About 5 years ago, 1/2 my town was without power for about 6 days following an ice storm. I was lucky to be on the side of town which had power, but that was just the luck of the draw.
Granted, most of our power outages has been for less than 3 - 4 hours but I also plan on fortifying my home and bugging in during most SHTF or civil unrest situations anyway so it would be nice to have power when others may not (As long as the natural gas line is not interrupted).

The solar flares are ramping up and can put us out of electricity for months. People won't be sitting around drinking beer anymore.

Same thing happened here. After those hurricanes in 04, they got a lot more strict about cutting back trees, and inevitably, some people (loudly) complained.

It seems no one is taking the threat of a natural EMP seriously, unfortunately.

yup...sad day when the power company around here will actually drop you a hookup line just outside your home for free so you can hook up your own gen.
