Most people don't take even the slightest bit of effort to prepare for weather emergencies. The average TV consumes 150 watts and an inverter sized to run a TV and a fridge is $70 to $200.

I've never really seen the point of buying a generator as I've owned a hybrid or EV for more than 15 years now but they are also cheap:

(Personally I think most people would do better with a deep cell battery and invertor than a small generator.)
