Weather Channel is saying that this may be worse than the 1978 blizzard.
Meh, we had a Nor'easter on December 27th, beat all time records.
There were very little power outages (mostly remote regions).
Though the best part was that we had a half-day at work! A BANK! HALF DAY! WTF?! (Well, the cashiers had to stay, HA!)
I wouldn't get too excited. What cuts power is (are? but then wouldn't it be "what cut power" and not "what cuts power"?) falling trees. Leafless trees don't blow over so easily, just like a boat with its sail down won't keel from wind
Winter is typically a power-outages-less season.
But hey, if you're positively excited, I hope all the best luck to you so that a tree falls on a power line near you! But I will also accuse you of wanting OTHERS to suffer so that you can enjoy your generator
edit - My real tip to you is this: Go fill up on food and movies. You'll be staying home tomorrow!
