Last time the power kept going out during the day, it ended up staying off all night. We lost power around 11 PM and it didn't come back on until 8:30 in the morning. It got a little chilly in the house without the heat. I just had to pile on more blankets so my tootsies were warm.
As soon as I get some "extra" money, I'm going to take starliner's suggestion and get an uninteruptable power supply for the TV and VCR. I'm getting a little tired of re-scanning for the channels.
Oooo, I can hear the wind howling now. It would be spooky if it were Halloween.
