I bought a generator

After years of resisting, I finally broke down and got myself a small inverter generator for emergencies.  We survived through snowpocalypse with just camping gear but, in these modern times, access to a steady supply of electrons is a requirement to stay connected.

Originally, I was looking at the Honda generators but ended up with a Harbor Freight Predator for half the price and, by all accounts, just as much reliability and power.

I have also acquired one of the Predators and have found it to work quite well, though I have only used it on work sites.

I have a Champion 7kW generator I use to power my home when the power goes out.

Yeah, I live in a development so the houses are pretty close together. If I lived on a larger piece of property, I wouldn't worry about blasting a large generator.

The Predator is *very* quiet (I thought) and I'm just looking for something to keep food from rotting in the refrigerator.

And power my Chromebook.
