Yes. Down here in "hurricane alley" we have too learn short term survival.
Last small storm, took out the power for 10 days.
Power companies came from all over too help..
Most sought after item "Ice."
We were able too obtain perisable foods. But without ice, they had too be eaten rather quickly.
Interesting that out here in the swamps. Everyone kind of pulled together.
After about day eight, I started getting visions of my cats on the grill.
Thank God, for them, power was restored.
