If you've got a working fridge and heat, phooey on the rest. It'll wait. Creature comfort and nutrition top my list of needs!National post quote says 20 percent of trees damaged in TO.
Not many places I have been over Xmas not showing it.
Generator also in my future plans , small maybe 2000 watt , to tun fridge/furnace.
Depends. If you are a young adult and in good health then you can tolerate a lot more. If you are going to be without power for days, then the money saved keeping food fresh might offset the cost of a generator. Now, if you are an older person, or you have a very young child, or someone in poor health, etc then that generator really comes in handy. Throw in some extreme temperatures then the game changes totally.Yeah certainly not like the Oklahoma hurricane situation ; I guess we are over reacting a bit. Minor inconvenience really when put in perspective.
