Just saw a forecast for Sunday. They are calling for a "bomb cyclone" in much of lower Michigan, with sustained winds of 35 mph and gusts of 50 mph for a good part of the day.
Where I live we still have power lines and I am anticipating losing power, which means I won't have television to watch the basketball game at 4 pm. I am thinking of contingency plans, and so should you if you live in the region.
Question: I've heard there are now smaller, affordable generators available that can run limited power for rotating appliances in a brief outage. Thinking I could run my television during the game, and then later freezer, furnace, etc. (although now I'm thinking my cable wires could go too, in which case I'm totally screwed). So, what are my options for a small generator that won't cost me $800?
