The In-Laws Have Power Again!

I, however, do not.

I have a generator and a cunning network of high-capacity extension cords with which to pipe oodles of Mr Tesla's Alternating Current to my fridge, laundry, TV and interwebs where they are needed most urgently, a testament to emergency can-doism, forward planning and the deployment of large amounts of cash to ward off inconvenience ('tis the American Way).

What I do not have is a good supply of gasoline, now rarer than Americium on Long Island and which the mere hint of a supply will cause of not a little violence and civil disorder in the populace (most of which is from out-of-town it seems), with which to run said generator.

It's all very annoying.
