During major outages the cable company and the phone guys often stick generators at boxes on poles
They do that here but they use large truck mounted generators to power a whole region rather than little Hondas.

The truck gennys come out when they do something like convert an area from 11KV to 22KV and a whole load of places need temporary power for a while.  If, on the other hand, a weather event takes out the juice, well, hell, you're out in the country: deal with it :)  Big gennys are also no good when poles have blown over and thus the distribution is screwed.

I'm particularly fond of this pic; a pole split into three...
