We're thinking about acquiring some new technology - a camp stove and a small generator! Undecided about the generator, though - that might be overkill, since this kind of snow hardly ever happens in DC. But the extended power outage made me realize how precarious our comfortable existence can be when absolutely everything in the house is powered by electricity and it's cold outside. We don't even have a fireplace. It would be nice if we could find a way to power one heat source and one lamp for several days. I'm just glad we live in a reasonably walkable neighborhood.
