I have a 6.5K gas generator and keep enough fuel to run it for 2 weeks. My well pump has a change over switch so I can run it from the generator as water is our most needed resource. We keep 2 weeks worth of non perishable food in the pantry. Even when running the well pump (which is not constant but as needed) I can still power several 110vac circuits for lights, the computer, ham station etc. Woodstove and wood pile with two winters worth of split, dry firewood covers our heating needs.
There are sheep. There are wolves who prey on the sheep. There are sheepdogs who protect the sheep from the wolves. God protect those of us who are sheepdogs.
