My uncle brought me a generator during the hurricane. Before he got there every hour i would stir the tank and blow into it with a staw or airline tubing just to get oxygen in the water.

If your car is parked nearby, a $50 inverter and an extension cord will keep your power heads running for a long time.

i bought a generator for those times when we lose power. it was a great investment since we were hit by a hurrican and our power was out for almost 3 days! best money i spent! saved all my food too. and still enough power to run 1 tv and 1 lamp.

Generators can be real life savers, just remember they have to be started once a month to be sure they will work when you need it too. Try not to store gas in them for too long either. All the other obvious warnings for their operation goes without saying. We use them for emergency response and we have found they are very prone to not starting when you need them the worst. Karma.
