You guys, and me, with generators: how long do you think a gas powered generator is going to run when gas will literally be unavailable after about a week of a "lights out" situation?
Yeah, I have one. But I also know that I am not gonna get much use out of it.

Fire up the generator and plug in the refrigerator and freezer? Possibly draw some water and fill the tub and water storage containers? Check lanterns and candles for light....
How did I do?

I live in the rural part of my state. I often times encounter the power going out. I have lanterns that use kerosene and dried wood for the fire pit, and to heat my home. Two wells with bucket access, and a pond of about an acre and a half stocked with quite a population of fish. Also arms to protect everything with..... as do my neighbors. We are a close knit group, and look after each other. That is my preparedness. We could bring substantial deterrent to bear.

Back up generators are pretty common these days
