I’m in southern California. (We were in the 80’s today.)
I keep hearing about people in the mid West and Northeast losing power for extended periods of time in VERY cold weather.
What do these folks do? It would seem that just putting on a coat during the day and extra blankets at night wouldn’t be enough when the outside temperature is below zero. Would a fireplace burning a lot of wood make a home warm enough to survive in? Are a lot of these homes using gas as a heat source. Do these gas heaters need electricity to work?
Going to a motel (with power) seems like an expensive option.
