Default Generator for house needed: diesel, gas or natural gas?

We escaped Irene without losing power but need to set up with a generator for the next one.

All of our vehicles are diesel so that might be a good way for us to go considering that we could siphon out of those tanks if needed.

We do heat our house with natural gas, could we power a genset that way?

What size unit should I be looking for to keep 2 refrigerators, one deep freeze, one small window mounted ac unit running. 2200 square foot house, 200 amp service.

What do I need to hook up to my house?
