I got a 9kW generator a year or two before Sandy because the power in my area
sucks.  Lost power one July after a heavy noreaster like storm and the power
was out for 3+ days in 90degF temps.  It was a godsend when Sandy took out my
power for 2 weeks.  The only issue then was gasoline which was being rationed
at my local gas stations.  I purchased a transfer switch but I still have not 
installed to allow connecting the generator to the whole house instead of me
running 230V and 115V extension cables through the house.
