Sunday, no guests, winter quiet, sound like a frieght train coming down river: sudden wind rips awnings, bends flag pole, knocks out power for 23 hours. Emergency lighting, one fireplace, just the amount of water in the pressure tank. Generator works but not for whole house so no hot water. Not sure what we would have done with a full house. It rapidly gets past the "romantic candle light adventure" to "its freezing and I need a shower". Never had it out more than 4 hours before. Will need to draw some contingency plans.
