snow storm and no power

So I've been sitting here in the dark for almost 3 hours now with no heat. This is our second snow storm within a week. The temp is dropping in the house and when I called almost 3 hours ago, they say power should be back on in 8-12 hours. WHAT? !? I'm thinking of going to cuddle with DD in her bed. She sleeps in footie pajamas bit she refuses to sleep with a blanket and I don't want her to wake up as an ice cube. I'm really irritated because the people across the streets have power and or tiny little block doesn't. This happened during the outbreak of tornados last summer. Ugh!

Our power flickered but has stayed on.  Our electric coop warned us though that it might flicker every now and then due to the age of power lines and the weather.  Is yours up and running yet?

What a drag! If its a recurring issue maybe think if getting a generator? A cold house is no fun!
