Just got a generator and a gas caddy.

Question: Did you guys build a housing for your generators?

Sorry to hear that Twinscrew.

I'm using a Suncast shed, set up similar to this:

I was referring to our marina where we are still making repairs. Nothing much you can do when the water comes up & over the bulkhead. I had no damage from Sandy at my home, never even lost power.

No generator in the world would have helped. 2 feet plus in my 1 floor ranch 3 blocks from the bay. House completely redone ( 4 ft sheetrock removed and replaced} Moved back in end April. People in my area still have PODS in front of their homes. Can just hope it was as they say a once in a lifetime happening. I am in the area 40+ years and nothing comes close to Sandy.

Keep in mind 2 things:

1) There are a LOT of damaged power poles out there that another storm, even "just" a Noreaster will bring down.

2) LIPA took a lot of heat for keeping the power on in the flood areas that lead to electric fires. The next time they are likely to shut down parts of the grid pre-emptively. [img]nono.gif[/img]

We've got one just outside the marina which is cracked & you can see swaying in the wind. It has a transformer on it to boot. Con Ed knows about it but has done nothing.

Driving down many parts of Montauk hwy, 5th ave in Bay Shore, etc. your see power poles titled left and right at significant angles.

Wouldn't take much IMO to bring many down. Be it a hurricane, Noreaster, blizzard etc.
