Luckily I live in Florida so it doesnt get really really cold, well except for the winter months, we can almost get to freezing usually.

I'll add generator to my current CL searches, ya never know. Like I said, I'd love a generator but I know for a fact we can't afford one especially after my big tank buying day a few days ago. We are broke. lol

Well, finding a cheap generator now should be easy as it is coming into hurricane season. I'm also worried about it but think I will just buy a good UPS system for my in-tank power heads and possibly the return pump in the sump.

I would definitely recommend getting a small genny for emergency applications. This is the one I use, it's cheap and has power to spare to run extra stuff too.

Glad your power's back. I'm considering a generator as well. I'm at over $2k on this tank, so I need to be ready for WHEN, not IF

Uh, I wouldn't put ANY gas burning generator in a house with or without the windows open. That is a very bad idea. Put the generator outside and run extension cords in.
