The longest the electricity has ever been out has been 5 days because the crew couldn't get to the disruptions due to high wind and deep snow. It has been out for a day or two at a time but not recently. Now if we lose power and need to clear the snow we can plug in the block heater to the generator and be able to get in and out if needed. We have a few other uses for it as well. We have portable propane heaters to keep the pipes from freezing under the house and the wood stove to keep them from freezing in the house. We also have a walk behind snow thrower and it has electric start so we can use the generator to get it going.
Extra precautions just in case we would lose electricity for an extended time period.
