Electricity is something you miss dearly in a very short time. It's one thing to talk about it. It's a totally different thing to experience it.
You were able to power your refrigerator and not lose food. That's a biggie.
Be careful not to backfeed the grid.This may prob be in an earlier thread, BUT several years ago we lost power for three days. But early in the process I made a long cord from SO and twist lock end. I backfed the panel from the generator. I was the only one with fridge, tv, cable and microwave.
I now in my new to me house have put in a gas range (the beeeeest decision) because it’s 120v. And a 50 amp cord from a double pole breaker to the outside corner of the house where inset an RV box with a 4 prong rec. Made a 50’ cord and Im setup to power the house with 220v from my tried and true (and loud as hell) North Star genset. I won’t ever be caught like that again.
