I am asking this question because I live in the north east, and right now we are in the middle of quite the ice storm. We do have a generator, so i know that my little piggies will be ok, but what should you do in the event you don't have that generator??

I understand your problem, it is -2 going down to -14 today. In addition to my generator, I keep several of the styrofoam boxes they ship fish in. Mine are set up with dividers and have 30 hour heat packs ready. I have sufficient heat packs to keep my kids warm for at least 1 week. The areas are fairly small but at least they would be warm.

  • wood burning fireplace heats the house somewhat
  • windows for ambient light
  • if needs be, move chameleons to smaller housing/boxes, use hot water bottles (your hot water tank, if you have one, will stay hot a long while - otherwise boil water on the bbq) or heat packs (as used in shipping)
  • if I lived somewhere it gets really cold, I'd have a generator
  • other options: solar panels, wind generator, electric generating bike, taking chameleons to a vet that has a generator and will board, etc.
