i am just curious how you ladies stay warm and get by with your kiddos when your power goes out? 'specially for days on end. i grew up in colorado, out in the middle of nowhere and we often lost power. but we also had no central heat and air, we had a wood stove. our home was small enough to heat most of it all nite with a big lump of coal and some wood. we had a bbq on the porch to cook meat up on and anything that went in a pan could be heated on the wood stove. water was not to much of an issue, if the hand pump froze up, we would head over to the pond, break the ice and haul back buckets. and we had no tv to speak of, and the phone was not cordless, so unless the phone lines went too, it still worked. because our life was so simple, electricity was not quite so depended on as it is today. we did not need it for heat, phones, cell phones, laptops, microwaves, ect.
so how do you get by when the power goes?
BTW, we are in florida now, and loose power with hurricanes and such, and now i ain't so tough!! i NEED my electricity! LOL!!

We've never had the power go out in cold months. If it did, we would just go to my FIL's house. He has propane and a generator.
Now, back in 2003 when we had that big blackout for a few days, it was summer. We just spent our time in the pool. Used coolers with ice for what food we could. We also cooked on our grill.
