I wanted to get a generator last year, after the Halloween snow storm knocked us out for almost a week. My husband decided that we didn't need one, that we'd never experienced a long power outage before, so... ! We'll have hot water, unless the water becomes unsafe. We have gas hot water heater. We also have a gas cooktop, but the ovens are electric. Hopefully, it won't get as cold as it was last year, we won't have heat.
NJ has also declared a state of emergency.
Milanessa, are you all okay in FL?
