More rules and regulations for generator use?
For Arthur Bennett, blackouts now come with a soundtrack.
When last month's "thundersnow" knocked out power in Bennett's Montgomery County neighborhood, the preindustrial hush inside his house -- when even the refrigerator seemed to hold its breath -- soon gave way to the two-stroke roar of engines up and down his block.
"As soon as the power goes out, the generators come on," said Bennett, a resident of the tree-filled, outage-prone village of Garrett Park. "In the last couple of years, it's gotten to be like a bunch of lawn mowers running all night. It means I don't sleep very well."
