Have a generator? Maybe you only think so

So you have a generator sitting in your garage. When was the last time you serviced it? Ran it? Tested it under a load? Did you have an electrician install or check out the connections for it? Maybe you don't really have a generator that will help you in a power outage, you have a hunk of metal taking up space. And remember, when you test your generator and run it for real, move it out of that garage or other enclosed space. Carbon monoxide kills.
