I probably will have to think of getting a generator. The power outages are most often in the winter. If you get the misfortune of the line from your house to the pole getting cut ... you don't get it back for ~1 week :S
I wouldn't be against installing a subpanel myself ... I have the knowledge, but I do not know building codes which is where things get tricky. I'd still pull a permit so if some disaster happens the insurance adjuster can't use that against me.
I don't have a well pump, or sump pump, or any of that mumbo jumbo ;) Just need enough for my fridge, freezer, fish tanks, and gas furnace (steam, so no forced hot air fan, just need a spark to ignite the gas).
