Generators are handy

Had a big Arizona monsoon storm blow through here and knock the power out this evening. Fired up one little Honda 2000 and have lights, fan and internet going. I have a feller camped out back so we fired up the Miller welder which is 6500 watts to power his little travel trailer. Last report, power should be back on by midnight.

Definitely handy.
After Hurricane Harvey, ours kept our refrigerator and fans powered and charged the cell phones til they got the power back on.
They keep pushing those $10,000 whole house natural gas generators, but I think we'd pull out the REV if we really need a/c.

1 Honda 2000 definitely comes in handy.

These are handier:

4-2000's//////1-3500/////1-5000////and 1-6500.

Strategically placed between two Sons and myself.

Since doing this we have not lost power!!! Just sell one and watch what happens.
