I just got my insurance against my power ever going out again. Ours went out the other day in the storms. We are both working from home and Duke said it could be a couple of days before it came back on. Our work laptops won't go that long. Well, I got this delivered today so I doubt my power will ever go out again! It won't run everything but I have gas hot water and stove so I just need something to run the fridge and freezer, computers, a few lights and the TV. I have a guy coming to install a transfer switch this weekend.
