Sunday we were without electricity for about 10 1/2 hours, during which I started to panic, since it got below 60 degrees in the house. Was ready to scoop up my Cham and my 4 yr old daughter and try to trek to town, but roads were really bad, and obviously walking if stranded would kill my cham. We have a generator that will be ready in case this happens again, but I wondered what other people have done when faced with a similar situation? I did have the burners going on our gas stove to help, but winter storms here can be cold, and power outages can occur regularly. Any thoughts or tips?
