    Sadly it used to be "Fortress Sarasota". We don't have a generator here. I sadly remember the 3 days w/o power in the middle of winter 18 months ago. I think we're going to need to develop contingency plans. We were lucky this time.

    We have a little Honda 1000watt.



    The working theory is that you use it to periodically chill down your chest freezer to make ice that you then use to keep your fridge goods cool in coolers.

    We have luggage bigger than that gennie. Really a nice peace of mind thing to have.
