Okay, the recent power outtages in the Pacific NW have convinced me that having a generator is not a bad thing. Certainly better than losing a year's worth of homestead-raised meat in the freezer. (We had a freak "snowdump" just drop 3 inches of heavy wet snow on our hill early this morning, and the power was out AGAIN, but only for 6 hours. Still that is the 6th time since the end of October!) So weigh in and tell us what's a good generator and what's a bad generator?
