I'm living in Canada.. It's been one week since we have no power in our home. We are finding it very difficult to do our works without the power supply. Last week there was a huge storm and we heard that many trees had fallen. So that may be the reason for the power cut. But we have to find some temporary solution for time being. My son said that we can buy a portable generator. Edit: Link deleted by mod, we're getting a lot of generator spam all of a sudden. Before purchasing it I would like to ask few suggestions from you all. Will this plan help us or should we think of some other method?? I don't want to waste my money simply, so I have to know whether portable generator will be effective during these type of long power cut?
