This is a Home Depot in Huntington Station, but a store on Route 110 in East Farmingdale sold several UST generators to customers on Oct. 31, 2012 to combat the loss in electricity on Long Island. (Oct. 17, 2012) (Credit: James Carbone)

At the Home Depot on Route 110 in East Farmingdale around 2 p.m., seemingly every shopper was emerging from the store with a UST generator — dozens of blue boxes were crisscrossing the parking lot.

Inside, employees were loading them off pallets onto shopping carts and flatbeds for a long line of shoppers.

They're selling for $799. One employee said the generators had arrived about a half-hour earlier.
