  • I have never been without these things....
    I dont know your financial situation but it seems having the internet should not be a priority if you cannot afford water...

  • We were without electricity about a week due to an ice storm. We had a wood stove for heat and we used a cooler to keep milk and stuff for sandwiches. Our children were pretty young at the time, and we just treated it like an adventure.

  • We've had rough times--just like many other people. I think maybe electricity for like 3 days. It was awful.

  • I have been without electricity for a few hours during a storm or other power outage and without water for a few hours while the city was repairing a water main, but that's it.
