24 hours without power and it was 30 degrees outside and in; I mounted quilts on the two entrances to the living room and built a fire in the wood burning stove. I slept in the living room.
The power company finally called me about 2:30 am last night to tell me that they were in my area.
What a pain in the neck; I cooked in a dutch oven on the front porch, I built a snow man, and I did a few chores outside. But for the most part I stayed inside bored to tears.
I did my budget, I read seed catalogs, etc. I need to work on many things this year to prep for this when it happens again.
