Re: Good way to shield a genset from the weather
when hurricane sandy took away our electric, I had the generator set up in the driveway between my truck and my wife's truck (parked side to side 10 feet apart). I stretched a tarp between the racks on the roofs and secured it with some 550 paracord. worked like a charm
.......I now see it's a 1 car driveway you're dealing with, so i'd have to vote for the post directly above mine. i'd frame a little more with EMT and not tuck the tarp under the wheels though. maybe hammer a few pieces into the ground just past the asphalt, like 5' tall to secure the front of the tarp. I get paranoid with flammables near hot exhausts.
