Don't forget to have a 5 gallon container of gas ready to go!

If you really want your community to love you, have a quad with a snowplow or a small bobcat handy during the big snowstorms. Your neighbors will bestow you with gifts or put up with your crap (like ripping up a dirt bike or quad in the neighborhood when your need to get the mothballs out of their system) .

Congrats on the purchase. If you are like me, you won't lose power for 2 years.

LOL! Amen to that!

We didn't use our generator for 1.5 years after we bought it and that quad with the plow? It was a mild winter, wasn't it???

I have one in my storage shed - does me a lot of good there doesn't it??? Don't forget Fran to start it up at least once a month - and don't fill it with gas - just enough to get it started and run for a couple of minutes - but have that 5 gal can handy - and sealed tight - pour the storage can into your car every couple of months and go get it refilled with fresh gasoline.

Welcome to the doomsday club Franny...

Next things on the list are a few cases of MREs and a shotgun.

...oh yeah, and a pallet of Heinekin.

I'm not quite doomsday just yet. However, I am totally suburban. My next purchase will have to be a snowblower and then a riding lawnmower. Or go with my Baltimore roots and pave or concrete everything.

Fran - we can put in some synthetic landscape turf - looks and feels just like real grass (you need to get down on your hands and knees to see that it isn't real) - looks much nicer han concrete or concrete painted green
