    Guess you will have to go for the instant coffee and heat the water on the grill, lol. We always have gas for the grill, I keep 2 tanks, so when one runs out mid bbq, I can switch and keep on cooking, then I promptly refill the empty. Plus it is a great alt cooking source.

    Years ago we lost power for a week after one of the storms. I remember putting coolers in the snow on the deck to keep our food cold. We had lots of neighbors visiting though as even without power, we still had heat. One advantage of an ancient furnace. Someone even brought over a battery operated TV so the guys could watch a game. It was kind of fun.

    Gas stove and a percolating pot takes care of coffee..... However, if we lose electricity..... can't pump well water. I hate winter.....

    Here in CT they're predicting up to 30" of snow. It's going to be a long duration storm, with snow falling tomorrow at the rate of 2" to 3" an hour! Not expected to end until early morning on Wednesday.

    Last year, during the black out leading up to Xmas in Toronto, we were without power for four (4) days! Our fireplace was useless (it doesn't have an insert) and we essentially had to hunker down and ensure we didn't freeze to death. It was EXTREMELY frustrating as the block over from us had power restored within one day and, to make matters even more irritable, my mood was pretty sour knowing we owned in Aruba... to the point where we came this close to abandoning ship and getting the first flight we could to Oranjestad.

    But then the power came on late Xmas Eve.

    Now, the minute the lights dim, I turn to The Spouse and say, "Pack the bags... we're outta here..."

    We put an outlet on furnace so if power goes out, we can hook up generator. We r able to hook up heat, fridge tv, couple of lights.
