We ended up with 6 inches of snow! We've been without power since Sunday afternoon. We were finally able to get out today so we are at the library. We were supposed to get our goats today, but that ain't happenin'! They think it may not be until tomorrow that we get power back. We finally got phone back about an hour ago. It is damn cold in our house! So Logan and I are going to be out and about today trying to find warm places to be.
I realized some holes in our preps being without power for a few days. Some small that I will take care of this week. Some bigger. Water is going to be an issue. When we lose power we lose water. We have 275 gallons in our cistern but that water isn't good to drink without filtering. In a long term power outage, water will become an issue. Heat could be another problem. We do have a fireplace but no wood. The neighbors have lots of wood we can use short term, but again long term could become an issue. Cooking is another issue. We have a propane burner, but we would eventually run out of propane in a long outage. I think a wood stove would be our best solution but I don't see Mark going for it. So, I've got some thinking and planning to do.
I'll update when we get power back. I've got some great pictures and video.
