My generator has sat for about two to three years. Now when it's cold I know the gas is old and it won't start.

Major kudos for getting a handle on your finances, but PLEASE do not take money out of your 401(k) except in the most extereme emergencies (like going to lose your house). You pay a massive penalty AND your tax rate. It's like getting a loan at fifty percent interest.

We leave the house early in the day, turn the thermostat down to a reasonably decent level (no sense in keeping an empty house toasty plus the propane tank was getting to the point where it would last most the rest of the cold weather if we used it economically, then would have to get it filled) and head off. That night the weather gets worse so we just have a sleepover. Next day we cruise home later in the day. When I walk in I quickly notice that the house is MUCH colder than it should have been, and the furnace is running. Back door is a little "tricky" and you have to ensure it is shut all the way or it pops open. I failed to do so. House=freezing, propane=basically gone; thank God we have a fireplace and a good stock of firewood for especially cold times.
Lesson: always make sure all doors and windows are secure (have gotten better with this with a one year old tearing around the house and trying to escape through any crack he can find), get propane tank filled BEFORE heading into winter (the price I had to pay to get propane almost made me cry, plus I could only get what I could afford at the time which was not much, plus they could not come out for a couple days because of bad weather and being so far away).
