The power went off for a couple hours this morning. The upside was, I had the opportunity to practice with some of my survival stuff. I made coffee on a butane hot plate by the light of a rechargeable lantern.

While I was enjoying a hot cup of joe, a branch snapped off a tree and hit the house. Minor damage to the siding, but the roof appears to be ok.

Welcome to winter.

Power outages are pretty common up on our little mountain in NH. Damn generator kept me awake for a while during this last storm.
