Is buying an emergency generator worth it?

Was thinking of buying an emergency generator, but am just about to decide that it isn't worth the cost, even though I got a really good deal - $5000 pesos - on a new John Deere AC-G7500H generator. It just doesn't seem to be worth the outlay to keep two refrigerators, a couple of ceiling fans (I've got an air conditioner but seldom use it), and an exterior night light running, even if power is out for a couple of weeks. Checked Consumer Reports, and did the math (which says, at that pretty good price, to go ahead and buy it) - but I'm still a bit leary. What am I missing - what else should I be considering? Got any generator owner's/user's experience to share? Thanks
