I'll sell you mine for $1500
You're too late IMO
, unless you want to pay way more than it's worth.
Most people probably already have scoured CL
and bought every generator within 3 states. The only ones you will find are probably selling for 2x their value.
I live in a rural area, so I need to have one. I would just ride this one out and then go on CL
AFTER the storm. You can probably find a good deal and be ready for the next hurricane/blizzard/etc.
