Whatever works when the power goes out! The winter storm we are having is one of our more ferocious ones. I would guess the winds gusts to be closer to 65 MPH than the 50 MPH predicted. The power was out for a little over an hour, but we still had light - some from batteries and some from fire. Once the power came back on I decided I better upload now incase the power goes out again. Times like these I wish I lived right on the ocean, rather than two miles inland. Regardless, we hear the ocean like it right outside our door.
