    Thats a good question i went over to home depot yesterday to get cords and a space heater and they just got some generators in and people were snatching them up as soon as they were coming off the truck.Same thing with the heaters when i got there they said they were out but before we left they had a few come in on the same truck and i was lucky to get one of those but they didnt last long either.Its crazy:crazy:

    Good luck guys, we where fortunate and just got snow. This summer though we got all the high winds from the hurricane and lost power for over a week and bought a generator then. It wasnt nearly so bad though because it wasnt cold. Will never get rid of the genorator though. Have even found it helpfull for other things. Good luck guys.

    It'll be good to have around but it needs to be ran every now and then instead of just sitting, just like a car.
