Typical situations when living in the mountains is having power outages especially when the wind blows - which is most of the time. Today was no exception as the power has been out two separate times with the longest being one and one half hours. Candle light for a while and we are prepared for longer outages.
It is 26 degrees out so if it would stay out we would crank up the generator to keep the refrigerator cold. When you live remote minor inconveniences happen so it is just best to be ready for when they occur.
