I'm getting my whole house generator installed today! Squee! I'll be so glad to have that worry gone. If power went, we would still have the wood stove for heat, but we would have to boil water for washing and have no lights. This was a really important one for us to get done, as the neighbors said the road was without power for 2 weeks last Christmas. The power company would come out and cut trees off the line only to have more fall on the line within hours.
GREAT news and FAB idea there were parts of ND in the last major ice and wind storm with out power for weeks if not months. boggles the mind.
