We have some bad weather coming and we have only one generator between five single family homes we own. It’s also going to get very cold here next week. While the tenants may be responsible for lodging if need be, I am still concerned about freezing pipes etc. Two years ago I lost power on three all at once. Had to beg borrow and steal to get them covered. 

What do you all do to protect your investments in such a case? Should I expect anything from the tenants? 

Some of you have so many properties, I can’t imagine you have a generator for each one.
