    take photos with you to the hardware store and get an adapter.  note that a 220v outlet on the generator can not be connected to a 110v extension cord, you have to get a 220 v cord for that.  I can't think of many 220v appliances that are worth running during a power outage anyway -- grampa  [I'm in florida and have a generator for my refrigerator should a hurricane knock out my power for more than two days.  nothing else is worth powering unless you have medical equipment that demands power.]
