I lost power for 4 days last year in a snow storm. Some people I know were out for 9 days. Guess what, we all survived. If you can't live without power for more than 47 minutes, go drive to a hotel in PA. This isn't the end of the world where the whole eastern seaboard is going to be wiped off the map.
Look what Italy did to scientists for not correctly predicting and communicating danger . . .

Earthquake experts around the world say they are appalled by an Italian court's decision to convict six scientists on manslaughter charges for failing to predict the deadly quake that devastated the city of L'Aquila. They warned the ruling could severely harm future scientific research.
The court in L'Aquila sentenced the scientists and a government official Monday to six years in prison, ruling that they didn't accurately communicate the risk of the earthquake in 2009 that killed more than 300 people.
The trial centered on a meeting a week before the 6.3-magnitude quake struck. At the meeting, the experts determined that it was "unlikely" but not impossible that a major quake would take place, despite concern among the city's residents over recent seismic activity.
I know a lot of folks in Jersey though who were displaced for months, and had to do major repairs to their house.
It definitely isn't the end of the world, but the potential for major damage is real, I guess that is the point I am trying to make.
So lemme ask you fellers something....does anyone here use a power inverter or anything like that (powered from their car) instead of using a generator?
Technically its almost the same thing, since you're just running your car, and then running that power to select appliances in the house. Anyone?
Buncha Nancy's in this tread.
