Damn y’all. Just took some flooring back to the store in my truck. Turns out I’ve got a 400 watt generator with a 5.0L engine and a 36 gallon tank sitting in my driveway. There goes my crafty ploy to buy another generator. I could plug an extension cord into the house and power some lights, my wife’s work computer station, the internet, some chargers, and with careful load management probably a TV with my 30th anniversary present. See what y’all did?
Of course, a wood or pellet stove for the basement (plumbing into the chimney already exists) could still be an achievable goal. They’re probably really cheap on Craig’s list.
