So our new generator arrived today while I was at work.
It is just a small one but should provide us with some real comfort the next time the power goes out. We are going to get some gas and oil for it tomorrow and test it out to make sure it works. I'll post an update when we do.
I also ordered a small greenhouse today since the greenhouse we built has now been taken over by shade and cannot be moved (since one side of the greenhouse now makes up one side of a chicken pen). I just wanted a little something to grow a few things in. We'll see how it goes when I get it in as well.
