Cutting to the chase: If you have a credible source for generators in the 5000 watt range without price gouging in the Seattle area, please let us know here. Our area was among the hardest hit and we’re still without power in sub-25deg weather at night. We were VERY lucky (our neighbors had a 30ft maple tree come down on their house, we were boarding it up at 1am on Friday). I don’t trust PSE’s estimates – website says updated every few hours, they updated at 6am and 5pm tonight with limited information, KIRO 770AM has conflicting info.
A number of us are looking for generators in earnest. If you have a legitimate offer or contact, please let us know here. Thanks and god bless to others in similar situations.
